    The BAWSC Board of Directgors would like make you aware that the State Joint Legislative Budget Committee Hearing is  scheduled for 9/11/18 to review and approval a proposal sponsored by Senator Holly Mitchell, President pro Tempore of the State Senate Toni Atkins, and Speaker of the Assembly Anthony Rendon. 

    These legislators will decide if California should OK a 50-year blank check water contract that would clear the path for the Delta tunnels project.

    Complete details are available at:

    Call key these state legislators before 9/11 to let them know your opinion: 

    1. Call Senator Holly Mitchell, Chair of the Joint Legislative Budget Committee: (916) 651-4030 Sacramento Office; or (213) 745-6656 Los Angeles Office;

    2. Call President pro Tempore of the State Senate Toni Atkins: (916)651-4039 Sacrmanto; or 619-645-3133 San Diego Office;

    3. Call Speaker of the Assembly Anthony Rendon: (916) 319-2063 Sacramento Office; or (562) 529-3250 Lakewood Office;

    The Restore the Delta group has provided the following recommendation of what to say when you call these legislators:

    “Your upcoming decision on the State Water Contract will impact taxpayers and our water throughout the entire State of California. I urge you to delay the informational hearing until all information regarding financing of the Delta tunnels has been provided to the legislature and public input can be given. It is completely irresponsible to give no notice of a public meeting, and by proxy discourage input from constituents. It is also irresponsible that legislators are expected to make an informed decision without access to contract amendments and no idea what the cost impacts would be for taxpayers and water ratepayers.”
