SACRAMENTO- In this time of unprecedented drought it is extremely vital that water agencies throughout California provide due attention to regional sustainability. This includes finding ways to reduce reliance on the Delta and looking at ways to increase local water storage options.

August 14, 2014

"In this time of unprecedented drought, I am proud to support a water bond that includes both above-ground and underground storage, water re-use and recycling and funds for safe, clean drinking water.  Importantly, this proposal is Tunnel neutral.     

I am looking forward to continued work with the Administration to ensure full appropriation of levee protection and flood prevention.     

Voters will now have the final say in November on the critical issue of California’s future water availability."

Statement from Senator Cathleen Galgiani:

 “As the author of Prop 1A, I am intimately familiar with the language of the bond measure, and the context in which it was enacted. Therefore, I filed a separate Amicus in the Third Appellate District Court asking that the Trial Court be reversed, to allow the High Speed Rail project to move forward."

 “I’m sickened to hear about the tragic events that happened in Stockton yesterday afternoon.  My heart and prayers go out to the family of the hostage who was killed.  What these callous gang members did using a hostage as a human shield, putting hundreds of law enforcement lives at risk and the safety of the community is unconscionable. I stand ready to provide our officers and community the resources we need to make our home safer.” Senator Cathleen Galgiani

Prop 1A & Regional Rail Funding

In 2008 I authored Assembly Bill 3034, Proposition 1A which provided $950 million dollars of funding for capital improvements to intercity and commuter rail lines and urban rail systems that provide direct connectivity to the high-speed train system and its facilities.

 This funding source has since been fully allocated, even though a number of projects remain that meet the initial funding criteria.

Bath Salts are on the rise amongst teenagers across the U.S. 

More and more young people are trying the drug for recreational use.  While it is illegal to sell the substance, it’s not illegal to possess it.

 Now there’s a huge push to change that.  “Kids believe that it’s not dangerous if it isn’t illegal,” says John Lovell, an attorney working with a number of law enforcement agencies across the state.  Lovell is committed to educating the public on the dangers.  “Someone who takes them becomes hyper-active and hyper-aggressive.”
