Water rate assistance bill advances

By From page A5 | April 24, 2014

A ratepayer assistance program to help low-income Californians pay their water bills was approved Monday by the Assembly Committee on Utilities and Commerce.

AB 1434, authored by Assemblywoman Mariko Yamada, D-Davis, is intended to ensure water affordability, especially in communities served by smaller utility companies that cannot or choose not to provide assistance to low-income customers, she said.

The bill will be heard next in the Assembly Committee on Appropriations.
