In addition to fights over budgets and entitlement spending, not to mention the growing pension obligations which threaten the future of our state, the cascading water wars are pitting different legislators in the state senate.

Water is a vital commodity in our state. Southern Californians deserve the best quality for the lowest price provided through the most efficient means possible. Water wars are wearing away the precious little time and money that the state has, and we need our legislators to focus on the budget woes which threaten to submerge the entire state in red ink.
