Urgent Action Needed, California: Support SB 244 for clean water!
Hello CA WILPF members,
It is now time to mobilize and call Governor Brown’s office to support SB 244.
Urgent Action is needed on SB 244, one of the four bills in the Human Right to Water package of bills all passed by both houses of the CA Legislature
Four bills seeking clean drinking water for all have passed the CA Legislature, but Governor Brown is being pressured to veto SB 244, the bill that will require municipalities and other water service districts to make plans to serve those poor communities that have been “redlined” out of water and sanitation services. Often these poor communities are islands within a municipality whose residents have safe drinking water.
We need your help to let Governor Brown know that SB 244 is important.
Call the Governor today at 916-445-2841.
Script: "I am calling to ask Governor Brown to sign SB 244 into law."
Don’t be discouraged by a busy signal. Dial again. You will have to push through the automated system to speak with an operator to express your support for SB 244. Be patient and persistent —you may initially get a busy signal and there will be buttons to push and an operator to speak to! There is a slight delay to get through to an operator, but continue and complete the process, so that your voice will be heard and your request recorded.
