ACEC California Supports CA Legislature’s Water Bond Decision (AB 1422)

The American Council of Engineering Companies, California (ACEC California) today supported the California Legislature’s decision to postpone for two years a statewide vote on the proposed $11 billion water bond. Yesterday both the State Assembly and the State Senate voted to approve AB 1422, which pushes a decision originally scheduled for this November to the November 2014 ballot.

“The need to improve the state’s water infrastructure is clearly there but, practically speaking, delaying the decision on whether to issue those bondsmakes complete sense in the current fiscal environment. We applaud the Assembly and Senate for their pragmatic, bipartisan approach this week and look forward to working with local and state officials and many other organizations over the next two years as we help to educate Californians on the need to dramatically improve California’s water supply,” said Paul Meyer, executive director of ACEC California.
