Logue introduces water bond

By From page A4 | January 09, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Assemblyman Dan Logue has officially introduced a $5.8 billion water bond that he says “is a step away from the governor’s Delta pipeline, which will cost taxpayers over $70 billion.”

The measure by Logue, R-Loma Rica, who is running for the 3rd congressional district now represented by John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, will go on the ballot if approved by the state legislature. The assemblyman can bypass Sacramento and pursue an initiative if his measure fails to pass in the legislature.

All of the funding from the bond is allocated toward the storage of ground and surface water, Logue said.

“Our water policy must be for the ultimate benefit of Californians and improve water quality, enhance our ability to protect ecosystems, and increase water storage for emergency situations,” he said in a press release. “I am always willing to consider additional components that may help California’s water crisis. ”

“This is not a north state or a Southern California issue, because the drought crisis is an issue for the entire state,” Logue said.

He represents the 3rd Assembly District, which includes the counties of Yuba, Sutter, Butte, Tehama, Glenn and Colusa.

    I thought Dan Logue was a fiscal conservative. Why in the heck would he want to burden the people with another $5.8 billion in new debt? And it's not just $5.8 billion... it's like your mortgage, you have the amount you borrow ($5.8 billion in this case) and then you add about double that again for the interest. Dan Logue's new loan of $5.8 billion will cost the taxpayers closer to $15 billion. People, don't you think the government already takes enough money from you? Sounds like Dan Logue is just another politician stickin' it to the people. He just puts a fiscally conservative mask over his rhetoric.

    And the definition of fiscal conservative is to never spend money, or is it to never borrow money?

    The Mister seemed to miss that this is a more fiscally responsible solution to the tunnels. We have to deal with the water issues. This is a reasonable start.
