RE: Support AB 1242 (Ruskin-Jones)

Dear Assemblymember Huffman:

The Women's International League for Peace and Freedom, U.S. Section, wholeheartedly supports AB 1242 that would amend the California State Water Code to read that "every human being has the right to clean and accessible water on an equitable basis".
