Your Call:Can Proposition 1 help preserve California’s precious water?

Sep 28, 2014

On the September 29th edition Your Call, we’ll have a debate about Proposition 1, the ballot initiative that would authorize a 7-and-a-half billion dollar state bond for water infrastructure projects. Proponents say Proposition 1 will clean up groundwater, expand recycling and storage capacity. Opponents say it’s too vague and does nothing to address long-term water shortages in California. It’s six weeks from Election Day - what questions do you have about Proposition 1?   Join the conversation with David Onek and you.

Guests:

Adam Scow, California Campaigns Director at Food & Water Watch

Doug Obegi, staff Attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council
