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

Position: Oppose [April 20, 2021 Version]

Letter excerpt:

The undersigned organizations write to express our opposition to SB 223, a bill that proposes to rewrite recently enacted statutory restrictions on discontinuation of residential water service for nonpayment. SB 223 was most recently amended on April 20 following concerns raised by our organizations 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.
