Governor Brown Prioritizes Safe and Affordable Drinking Water for All in Budget

Sacramento, CA | January 10, 2018 -- Governor Brown commits to ensuring the basic human right to safe and affordable drinking water for all Californians in his January proposed budget.

The following statement was issued by Clean Water Action, Community Water Center, and Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability:

“Up to one million Californians have to turn on the taps to water that is unsafe to drink.
