Setting the stage for a major statewide battle over how to pay for an estimated $67 billion backlog in highway, bridge and road repairs, a ballot measure to repeal California’s recently enacted gas taxes and registration fees officially qualified Monday for the November ballot.

Already, Gov. Jerry Brown and a powerful coalition of chambers of commerce, law enforcement, unions, firefighters, local transportation agencies and cities and counties have vowed to fight it.

“I will do everything in my power to defeat any repeal effort,” Brown said in a statement shortly after the Secretary of State’s Office announced the effort had qualified for the ballot. “You can count on that.”

John Cox, the Republican candidate for governor, didn’t waste any time, either, to voice his support for the repeal.

Assembly Republican Leader Brian Dahle (Bieber) released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Janus v. AFSCME. The ruling bars public sector unions from demanding “fair share” fees from non-union members, which are often used for political purposes:

“Unions have had a monopoly on California politics for far too long. Today’s decision will stop unions from taking money away from hardworking people, without their consent, to push a political agenda that has made California unaffordable.

“Now, instead of pushing to serve union bosses, the Legislature can concentrate on fighting California’s highest-in-the-nation poverty rate.”

Nearly All Parents Who Commit Federal Crimes Get Off Scot-Free

By Stephen Frank

Democrats believe in “restorative justice”. They do not believe in incarceration. For illegal aliens a bill by California Senator Dianne Feinstein, signed to by many of the incumbents already in trouble, would totally open our borders, if two adults claimed a child as theirs—they would go free to roam our nation.

“Let’s break down Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s proposed “Keep Families Together Act” to see where Democrats went wrong. The bill provides that “[a]n agent or officer of a designated agency shall be prohibited from removing a child from his or her parent or legal guardian at or near the port of entry or within 100 miles of the border of the United States” (with three exceptions to be discussed later). Four immediate warning signs in this provision should put the reader on notice that this bill is not what Democrats claim.

First, “designated agency” here is defined as the entirety of the federal departments of Homeland Security, Justice, and Health and Human Services. The scope of the bill is not limited to those portions of these departments involved with the border crisis, and there is no other limiting factor in the bill that would cabin the prohibition on family separation to immigration-related matters. In other words, this bill is going to regulate conduct across a great many federal offices that have nothing to do with separating children from families arriving unlawfully in the United States.

Imagine, within 100 miles of our borders, illegal aliens can take over and law enforcement can do nothing! That is turning over San Diego, Detroit, upstate New York, major part of Texas Arizona, New Mexico and Minnesota to illegal aliens. Democrats literally want to turn over major U.S. cities to criminals. Watch as this explodes.

Congress must focus on Agri Immigration Reform

The California Farm Bureau Federation said it hopes the failure of an immigration measure in the U.S. House of Representatives will ultimately set the stage for Congress to resolve longstanding inadequacies in agricultural immigration programs that have contributed to chronic employee shortages on farms and ranches.

“Congress must move forward to forge a solution that would work well for farmers, ranchers and their employees throughout the nation,” CFBF President Jamie Johansson said.

“The California Farm Bureau will advocate for an agricultural visa program that would accommodate people who want to enter the United States legally to do farm work, and in large-enough numbers to ease the shortages farmers have experienced,” Johansson said. “The new program must also recognize our current, highly skilled immigrant employees and help them gain proper documentation.”

During discussions on immigration issues, he said, CFBF has taken a lead in seeking solutions that keep families together.

“Farm Bureau is a family-based organization,” Johansson said. “We support policies that protect families throughout the immigration process.”

He noted that congressional leaders may consider new legislation on agricultural visas later this summer.

“Rural California, and rural America, rely on skilled immigrant agricultural employees to produce food and farm products on which we all depend,” Johansson said. “It’s time for Congress to fix the agricultural immigration system. Farm Bureau stands ready to help.”

The Public Policy Institute of California issued a report, The Impact of Proposition 47 on Crime and Recidivism, claiming there is “no evidence that violent crime increased as a result of Proposition 47” in its summary. It further asserted that “Recidivism rates decreased due to Proposition 47.” Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama), former Chair of the Board of Prison Terms, issued the following statement:

“Californians are being harmed. There are fewer arrests because some criminal activities are no longer defined as crimes; and the Board of State and Community Corrections has redefined recidivism.

“Under Prop. 47, no matter how many times a sexual predator is arrested for possession of date-rape drugs, he will be sentenced as a one-time offender.

“The federal government issued a report last month revealing that an estimated 68 percent of prisoners were re-arrested within 3 years. Also, 79 percent were re-arrested within 6 years, and 83 percent within 9 years. Seventy-seven percent of released drug offenders were arrested for non-drug crimes, and more than a third (34%) were arrested for a violent crime.

“In 2016, only 42 percent of all violent crimes and 36 percent of property crimes were reported, according to estimates by the U.S. Department of Justice.

“These are startling facts that Californians face and know well. And that’s why sales of home security systems and other measures to keep our families safe have been on the rise.”

by YCWA Board Chairman Brent Hastey

May 2018 officially marked 10 successful years of the Lower Yuba River Accord, a statewide model settlement agreement between 18 different agencies, with many different interests and needs, all working together to make the Yuba River better.

The Lower Yuba River Accord improves conditions for salmon and steelhead in the Yuba River, provides funding to reduce the risk of flooding for the people of Yuba County, protects water rights for local farmers and ranchers, and provides critical water supplies during a drought year for communities throughout California. It is literally a win-win-win.

Getting this deal done was no small feat.

After nearly two decades of controversy and fighting in and out of a courtroom, Yuba County Water Agency led competing interests to a consensus, showing that collaboration can truly work when different agencies are willing to sit down and hash-out their differences.

And it is working today. During the summer and early fall, the water temperature of the Yuba River is typically 7 to 15 degrees cooler than other rivers in the region, since implementation of the Accord. Some of the water that is released for the benefit of the fish can be sold to downstream communities in need, and that revenue comes right back to YCWA, to pay the local cost of our major levee improvements in Yuba County, which have us on track to be the first community in California to reach the state’s requirement for 200-year levee certification in urban areas. There are way too many other accomplishments to list them all, but there’s a video on our website that goes into more specifics, if you’re interested.

Reflecting back on the 10 years of success, a couple things stand out. The Accord has proven to be a durable solution that can withstand the test of time, and every single organization involved had a leader at the table and someone willing to find a way to make it work until the final deal was done.

Without every single one of those important leaders, the end result may have been completely different, or perhaps the whole deal would have even fallen apart. But they stuck it out, fought through the challenges and made something great happen.

We recently hosted an event celebrating the success of the Lower Yuba River Accord, and it was great to have so many of the original players and the who’s who in California water attend. And I cannot tell you the pride I felt at hearing so many power players in the water world repeatedly say how Yuba County Water Agency was setting a high bar and had developed a model that should be replicated, both for water management as we face more extreme weather patterns, and for solving complex water problems in California (are there any other kind?).

We certainly live in an unusually divisive time, where understanding and even public discourse have really taken a hit. So, I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to have the Accord remind us that collaboration is something to be embraced. It’s not a dirty word! Reasonable people can come together with a focus on their interests and find science-based approaches that work for everyone. I can only hope that we will see more of that in the years to come, with the many challenges we have ahead of us.

My legislative colleagues and I have been urging officials at the DMV to get the outrageous field office wait times under control.
As a result of our efforts, the Yuba City DMV field office will offer Saturday services from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 16 and June 23. These offices will then transition to the first and third Saturday of each month beginning in July.
Saturday appointments can be scheduled up to 90 days in advance using the DMV’s website or calling 1-800-777-0133. Behind-the-wheel exams will not be available on Saturdays.
Please know that I will continue to fight for long-term reforms that will help get this situation under control.

A letter sent by Jeff Maupin, General Manager of North Yuba Water District(NYWD) to the 119 irrigation customers in the communities of Oregon House/Dobbins in late March of this year informing customers that there would be no deliveries of irrigation water this season which begins April 15th to October 15th. Sadly, there was no board participation in this onerous decision.

This letter enraged the farmers, ranchers, folks who own orchards, vineyards, or the many folks who grow a garden for their family. In response to this onerous decision by the manager, a group of irrigation customers met to discuss how to organize the community to become informed and educated.

The Oregon House/Dobbins Water Association mailed postcards to 885 irrigation customers and folks who are annexed into the district, pay taxes and have never received service and invited them to the associations first community meeting.

Please view the video of our Community meeting (May 23, 2018):

https://youtu.be/Vc4ci7_NDI8https://youtu.be/Vc4ci7_NDI8

The mission of the Oregon House/Dobbins Water Association is to ensure that the communities of Oregon House and Dobbins have a reliable source of water for now and for the future.

Two members of the steering committee met with Congressman John Garamendis’ field representative-Mary Jane Griego and gave her a packet of information regarding this crisis in Oregon House and Dobbins. Eleven members of the association attended Congressman John Garamendi’s town hall meeting in Marysville. The congressman was already aware of the crisis.

As a result of the work of the steering committee, Mr. Garamendi has already had his water representative in Washington contact the associations’ representative to let her know that they are keeping us on their radar for Federal Grant opportunities for piping the OH/D irrigation canal.

Our association is grateful to our new community member from Oregon House, Dr. Gretchen Flohr. Dr. Flohr is a Certified Wildlife Biologist with a 25-year career in academics and consulting. She is a published scientist with a long-standing positive relationship with the regulatory and resource agencies. Gretchen is very persistent and hard-working as it took 22 years to earn first an Associate’s degree and ultimately a Ph.D. – all while raising three children and working full time. Gretchen has run her own biological consulting business for the last seven years, working on conservation issues including as an advocate for the agricultural community. Moving to the rural community of Oregon House realized a life-long dream of hers to establish her own self-sufficient farm, far away from the Madding crowd.

The Assembly approved legislation by Assembly Republican Leader Brian Dahle (Bieber) that will ensure the state has a plan for dealing with discarded electric vehicle batteries. Currently, there are more than 450,000 electric vehicles on the road, yet there is no plan for dealing with these batteries when they eventually reach the end of their useful life. Assembly Bill 2832 received bipartisan support, passing on a 66-0 vote.

“There are currently hundreds of thousands of electric vehicles on California’s roads. Eventually, there will be millions,” said Dahle. “That’s a lot of batteries that we will have on our hands. I’m simply asking for a responsible plan to protect our environment.”

All batteries are considered hazardous waste in California when discarded. Assembly Bill 2832 will require the Department of Toxic Substances and Control to work with stakeholders to identify a plan to reuse or recycle batteries from electric vehicles at the end of their useful life. The plan will need to be submitted to the Legislature by July 1, 2020.

The bill now heads to the California State Senate for approval.

A healthier, thinner forest reduces fire risk significantly, and it also protects water quality and can improve water quantity. The Yuba watershed is about to reap all of those benefits, through a pilot project of the Forest Resilience Bond with Blue Forest Conservation and the World Resources Institute. The Yuba County Water agency will support this effort with a $1.5 million cost-share contribution to help fund the planned restoration in the Yuba Project.

The agency’s board of directors today approved the cost-share contribution, which will help fund various forest management techniques and allow researchers to study the effects on the watershed. The pilot project protects 15,000 acres within the north Yuba watershed. The total restoration cost for the project is expected to be about $4.6 million.

“As we learned all too well last year with the Cascade Fire, the risk in the Yuba County foothills is far too great,” said YCWA Vice-Chairman Randy Fletcher. “If this pilot project works as planned, it could mean really big things for our ability to reduce the fuel load by thinning the forest in a healthy, responsible way, thereby significantly reducing the fire risk to our residents, while bringing great benefits to the Yuba watershed.”

The U.S. Forest Service and National Forest Foundation, through funding provided by the Forest Resilience Bond, will deploy various forest management techniques, including different methods of forest thinning, meadow restoration, prescribed burns, and invasive plant treatment. Researchers will then monitor the impacts on water content and quality in the watershed, providing critical data to quantify exactly how forest health benefits watersheds, which could help spark additional investment in forest management techniques in the future.

The board unanimously supported this project due to its benefits for Yuba County’s water quality, quantity, healthier forest, air quality, economy and environment, Fletcher said.

“This is a private financing mechanism for forest health, which will be effective in increasing the pace and scale of treatment for this project and across the Yuba watershed,” said Blue Forest Conservation Co-Founder Zach Knight. “We hope this project can serve as a template for the entire state for funding forest restoration work.”

The Forest Resilience Bond deploys private capital to help make forests more resilient to changes in climate by investing in restoration projects that protect forest health and mitigate wildfire and drought risk. The pilot project will actually take place in Sierra County, but the planned activities will directly benefit Yuba County. If the pilot is successful, the planned second phase includes a much larger area, within the Yuba County boundary, near New Bullards Bar Dam and Reservoir.

“Yuba County Water Agency continues to lead the way in all aspects of water challenges,” said Fletcher. “We are likely to be the first community to reach the state’s requirement for urban area levees to be certified at the 200-year level, and now we could be the first watershed in California to get healthy as well. The future of our county depends on water, and I continue to strategize and plan for that bright future.”

on Governor Brown’s May Budget Revision

Sacramento, Ca.

Assembly Republican Leader Brian Dahle (Bieber) released the following statement in response to Governor Jerry Brown’s May budget revision:

“With the multi-billion dollar surplus, our state should focus on investing rather than spending. That means paying down state debts, building our rainy-day reserves and preparing our state’s infrastructure for the future.

“Obviously, I’d like to see taxpayers get that money back, but once the government gets hold of your money, it’s impossible to get them to let go.”

by Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Assoc. PAC

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association Political Action Committee (HJTA PAC) announced that it has endorsed Republican John Cox in his campaign for Governor of California. Cox, a successful businessman and a leader of the effort to repeal the gas and car tax increases passed by the legislature last year without voter approval, is the leading Republican according to several public and private polls.

“It is critical to have a pro-taxpayer candidate at the top of the ticket in November,” said Jon Coupal, Chairman of HJTA PAC. “If two tax-and-spend progressives are the only candidates on the ballot after the primary, that hurts our ability to advance our continued protection of Proposition 13 and California’s beleaguered middle class.”

Coupal said the HJTA PAC Board of Directors was impressed by Cox, who has been an important coalition partner in the gas/car tax repeal effort. Coupal further stated that “John Cox has demonstrated an ability to work with a broad spectrum of people to accomplish difficult and important goals and to articulate a limited government and pro-property rights message.”

Coupal also noted that the other Republican in the race, Travis Allen, has been an effective voice in the Legislature on behalf of taxpayers, receiving a 100 percent voting record with HJTA. “We wish Travis Allen the best, but it is now time for all California taxpayers to coalesce around the candidate who is best positioned to carry the pro-Prop 13 flag into November,” said Coupal.
