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.
