California Democrats Play Water War Games To Get Even With President Trump
Playing water war games with the people’s water is getting old in California. The winter of 2019 brought 200 percent of average rains and snow pack. Yet the state is still holding back on water to farmers, and residents will be rationed starting next year.
Under President Donald Trump’s administration, radical EPA regulations have been thoroughly reviewed, relaxed, and some overturned. However, the Legislature and Gov. Gavin Newsom are taking their own shot over Trump’s bow with Senate Bill 1, the California Environmental, Public Health, and Workers Defense Act of 2019. “This bill establishes specified minimum federal environmental, public health, and labor standards as state baselines in the event the Congress or President repeals or weakens corresponding federal standards, and prohibits the corresponding California standards from falling below those baselines. In the event that new federal standards fall below the baseline, this bill allows private citizens to enforce state standards,” bill analysis says.
