Dan Logue: My all-water and no-pork bond solution for our state
We are currently in the midst of one of the driest winters on record. Hardly any measurable rain fell in December or January, and despite this week’s drizzle there is no relief in sight.
Meanwhile, real people are suffering under mandatory water rationing orders. There is not enough water for farmers to grow crops. Restaurants, hotels and equipment rental companies that rely upon water for tourism like water sports have seen their business drop sharply. Californians are demanding immediate action from Sacramento to address the crisis and solve our water challenges once and for all.
The primary reason this year’s drought is so bad is a lack of forward thinking from Sacramento.
