Subject: SB 222 State Water Rate Assistance Program Oppose Unless Amended

Letter excerpt:

SB 222 would require the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) to implement a Water Rate Assistance Program that would provide financial assistance for both drinking water and wastewater services to low-income residential ratepayers. Such a program – if designed in a reasonable, efficient and effective manner– is something ACWA would like to see advanced. However, after months of no amendments in 2022, problematic amendments were made on June 23, 2022 after four policy committee and two appropriations committees had acted on the bill in 2021. The Author is addressing many of those problems with amendments to be made in the next few days. (RN 22 17802 10, August 2).
