Action Alert: Your Letters Needed NOW for a Good Water Bond
In response to Governor Brown’s proposal for a scaled-down water bond released earlier this week, PCL, along with Sierra Club, League of Women Voters, Friends of the River and California Urban Streams Partnership, released a competing $6B bond proposal. We need your help in urging legislators to follow the principles outlined in our proposed version of the bond, including ensuring that the bond is truly neutral on the BDCP tunnels and that ALL Californians have access to clean water. For more information on how you can help, please visit our action alert.

What Governor Brown's 14-15 Budget Means for the Environment
The state budget was released early last week due to a leak of the Governor's Budget Summary.
