This election one of the proposal on the ballot is funding for Environmental issues. Proposal 1 is a $4.2bn measure for climate change mitigation, flood-risk reduction, water infrastructure, and land conservation and recreation.
For our community, which has been affected by floods, this is a very important proposal. It allocates over a billion dollars for flood-risk reduction and relocating and repairing flood-prone infrastructure and roadways.
The money will also be used for stormwater runoff reduction, agricultural nutrient runoff reduction, and addressing harmful algal blooms.
