Subject: SB 223 (Dodd) – Discontinuation of Residential Water Service for Nonpayment

Letter excerpt:

The undersigned organizations write to express our oppose-unless-amended position on SB 223, a bill that proposes to rewrite recently enacted statutory restrictions that apply to the discontinuation of residential water service for nonpayment. SB 223 was amended on April 5 following concerns raised by the Association of California Water Agencies (ACWA) and others. While we appreciate Senator Dodd’s willingness to have conversations about the bill, the recent amendments do not moderate our opposition as SB 223 still poses significant concerns for public water agencies.
