Assemblymember Garcia Forms Bipartisan Water Conservation Working Group
From Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia’s office:
Yesterday, Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia, (D-Coachella) Chair of the Assembly Committee on Water, Parks, and Wildlife, mobilized a bipartisan team of legislators to tackle statewide water conservation efforts.
“Governor Brown’s proposed budget calls for an increase in water conservation investments. The Legislature must be proactive and get to work establishing the framework for what those policies should look like,” stated Assemblymember Garcia. “It is essential to engage my colleagues from both sides of the aisle and representative of California’s diverse terrain. We have assembled a balance of rural, urban, coastal, mountain, northern and southern voices committed to setting equitable priorities to protect our state’s most precious resource.”
Chairperson Garcia called together the following legislators to forge a new Assembly Water Conservation Working Group; Friedman (D-Glendale), Rubio (D-Baldwin Park), Gallagher(R-Yuba City), Weber (D-San Diego), Caballero (D-Salinas), Arambula (D-Fresno), Bloom (D-Santa Monica), Bigelow (R-O’Neals) and Dahle (R- Bieber).
This dynamic group of water advocates convened what will become the first of many meetings to discuss the direction of policy for this most precious resource and how to best make water conservation a California way of life.
Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D-Coachella) serves as the chairperson of the Assembly Committee on Water, Parks and Wildlife. He represents the 56th district, which comprises the cities and communities of Blythe, Brawley, Bermuda Dunes, Calexico, Calipatria, Cathedral City, Coachella, Desert Hot Springs, El Centro, Holtville, Imperial, Indio, Mecca, Oasis, North Shore, Salton Sea, Thermal, Thousand Palms, and Westmorland.
