    Dear EID Customers and Community: An eleventh-hour effort has emerged in the Legislature to impose a statewide tax on residential and business water bills. The tax, being called a “Safe and Affordable Drinking Water Fee,” has been inserted into Senate Bill No. 623 by Sen. Bill Monning (D-Carmel), a bill aimed at funding safe drinking water solutions for disadvantaged communities. Senator Bill Monning (D-Carmel) inserted language into his SB 623 that would impose a fee on urban retail water customers to pay for the operations, maintenance and administration costs related to providing safe drinking water in water systems and for private well owners that rely on contaminated groundwater for drinking water supplies. We at EID agree with the intent of the bill—the lack of safe drinking water in certain disadvantaged communities in California is a public health issue and a social issue that needs to be addressed. However, taxing Californians for something that is essential to life does not make sense, especially at a time when some are raising concerns about the affordability of water. To impose a statewide tax on Californians’ water bills would also turn local water agencies like EID into taxation entities that send money to Sacramento. Adding a statewide tax to local water bills is just not sound policy. This problem is a public health and social issue that requires focused leadership on the state level. Dollars from the state’s General Fund, packaged together with ongoing federal safe drinking water funds and general obligation bond funds are a far more appropriate way to address a problem that is a key social issue for the state. If you agree, please call your representative in the State Assembly at their capitol office numbers below and voice your opposition to this proposed water tax. SB 623 is scheduled for hearing in the Assembly Appropriations Committee on Wednesday, August 23 at 9:00 A.M. • Assemblyman Frank Bigelow (5th District), 916-319-2005 • Assemblyman Kevin Kiley (6th District), 916-319-2006
