As we have covered in our previous newsletters, BPC has taken official positions on several measures on the November ballot:
- PROPOSITION 3: YES
Proposition 3, the Water Supply and Water Quality Act of 2018, will invest over $8 billion in California water infrastructure, including key categories like: safe drinking water, Sustainable Groundwater Management (SGMA) implementation, watershed restoration, fish and wildlife habitat conservation, infrastructure repair, and many other important water management programs.
- PROPOSITION 6: NO
Proposition 6 would “repeal the gas and diesel tax increases and vehicle fees that were enacted in 2017 and require voter approval for fuel tax and vehicle fee increases in the future.” An overwhelming concern is the impact it would have on the funding for thousands of current and planned road and other infrastructure projects throughout the state. These projects are critical to our region and we simply cannot afford to put them at risk.
- MEASURE A (San Francisco): YES
Measure A, the San Francisco Seawall Earthquake Safety Bond, will fund urgently needed repairs to strengthen our Seawall in order to protect our historic waterfront, BART and Muni tunnels, main roads, utility and water systems from flooding, earthquakes, and natural disasters.
