Olsen Eyes Wa­ter Plan

Riverbank News - - NEWS -

Assem­bly­mem­ber Kristin Olsen (R-River­bank) is­sued the fol­low­ing state- ment in re­sponse to Gover­nor Brown’s ex­ec­u­tive or­der is­sued on Mon­day, May 9, which es­tab­lishes longer-term wa­ter con­ser­va­tion mea­sures:

“While it is cru­cial to en­sure that Cal­i­for­ni­ans are max­i­miz­ing ev­ery drop of wa­ter they have ac­cess to, con­ser­va­tion will not get us out of this drought or pre­pare us for the fu­ture. To en­sure wa­ter for ev­ery Cal­i­for­nian – now and in the fu­ture – we must ex­pe­dite and help fund wa­ter projects that will in­crease sup­ply and al­low peo­ple in ev­ery re­gion of the state to pros­per.

“As these reg­u­la­tions are de­vel­oped, I en­cour­age the Depart­ment of Wa­ter Re­sources and the State Wa­ter Re­sources Con­trol Board to work with stake­hold­ers and leg­is­la­tors from ev­ery re­gion of the state, to en­sure that lo­cal and statewide eco­nomic needs are pro­tected.”

Olsen rep­re­sents the 12th Assem­bly Dis­trict in the Cal­i­for­nia Leg­is­la­ture, which cov­ers por­tions of Stanis­laus and San Joaquin coun­ties in the Cen­tral Val­ley, in­clud­ing the cities of River­bank, Oak­dale and Escalon.
