OPINION: Should California Borrow $4 Billion More For Parks And Water?

California’s safe drinking water and natural resources are increasingly threatened by drought, wildfires, floods and mudslides. Proposition 68 is designed to help make our communities more resilient to the impacts of climate change. The measure was placed on the June 5 ballot by a bipartisan, two-thirds vote of the Legislature to make much-needed investments to bolster the reliability of our water supply and the infrastructure we depend on to help get us through wet and dry years. The Nature Conservancy’s mission goes beyond land conservation. We aim to protect the waters on which all life depends.
