  • Comment Letters

To: Speaker Pelosi, Minority Leader McCarthy, Senators Feinstein and Padilla, and Members of the California Congressional Delegation

Subject: Include Urgently Needed Long-Term Low-Income Water Rate Assistance Funding and Investments for Water Infrastructure in Congressional Actions

Letter excerpt:

Our organizations collectively represent both California frontline communities as well as over 500 California water agencies and other water and environmental stakeholders. We have come together to urge the California Congressional Delegation to include funding for urgent water infrastructure and water affordability needs as part of future Congressional legislation. We have advocated jointly since spring 2020 but our concern, and the level of need around water, have only grown. In 2021 we urge you to prioritize water as a core plank of Congressional actions to recover equitably and build back better.
