California is facing severe droughts, wildfires, and the impacts of a changing climate. Prop 68 will protect our water, parks, and natural resources.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was today joined by major environmental organizations, clean water advocates and local leaders to announce support for Proposition 68.
With just over two weeks to go until the June 5th election, the leaders underlined the importance of the initiative, highlighting how the $4.1 billion bond measure will address California’s most pressing water, parks and natural resource issues – emphasizing why Southern California specifically will benefit from Prop. 68.
The event, held at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, featured a wide variety of leaders and advocates, including The Trust for Public Land, The Nature Conservancy, Southern California Water Coalition, Los Angeles Conservation Corps, Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust, Los Angeles River State Park Partners and numerous others who all came together to energize Angelenos to pass Prop. 68.
A San Diego County Water Authority analysis recommends approval and notes the bond would address what is perhaps the state’s biggest little-known problem: the possibility of the shrinking, polluted Salton Sea becoming the source of toxic dust storms …
On balance, The San Diego Union-Tribune Editorial Board recommends a yes vote on Proposition 68.
California’s safe drinking water and natural resources are increasingly threatened by drought, wildfires, floods and mudslides. Proposition 68 is designed to help make our communities more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
Proposition 68 is a general obligation bond that invests $4 billion in the coming years to tackle some of California’s most important water, park, and natural resource needs. The state legislature passed the California Clean Water & Parks Act (SB5) with bipartisan support, and it will appear on the June 5th statewide ballot.
