ACEC California Announces Support of Ballot Initiatives

to Strengthen California’s Infrastructure

 

The American Council of Engineering Companies, California today announced its support of three ballot initiatives that each will help bolster the state’s housing and water infrastructure systems.

 

California’s strong economy and growing population need strong, innovative infrastructure systems to build upon the state’s successes,” said Brad Diede, Executive Director of ACEC, California. “ACEC California members are proud to support vital policies that will help provide reliable, stable funding for affordable housing and community parks; and fund critical groundwater projects and water conveyance systems.”

 

Last month, ACEC California pledged monetary support of the Veterans and Affordable Housing bond, which was authorized by the California State Legislature last year through SB 3. The $4 billion bond will primarily help fund housing programs for very low-income households and veterans; and it provides down payment assistance to first-time homebuyers. The bond will appear on the November 2018 ballot.

 

ACEC California also pledged its support to Proposition 68, a $4.1 billion bond that will appear on theJune 2018 ballot. The bond will largely fund projects to upgrade California state parks, as well as fund important water projects such as levee improvements in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Proposition 68 was placed on the June ballot by the legislature last year through the passage of SB 5.

 

Finally, ACEC California will support the Water Supply and Water Quality Act of 2018, which is anticipated to qualify for the November 2018 ballot. The $8.1 billion bond will diversify and improve California’s water supply by funding projects that improve water storage, watershed management, conservation and drought mitigation.
