Bond qualifies for November ballot with $54 million for Sierra Conservancy.

Sacramento, CA —

The Clean Water, Parks and Coastal Protection Bond has qualified for the November 2006 ballot, and been given the number Proposition 84. Momentum is building for the Clean Water, Parks and Coastal Protection Bond, with nearly 100 key leaders and nonpartisan organizations endorsing the measure – from conservation groups, water agencies, government entities, civic organizations to businesses. The Sierra Fund has already endorsed this important initiative, and will be raising money to support this campaign.

The measure addresses the most basic and fundamental issues Californians care most about:

  • Safe drinking water
  • Reliable water supplies
  • Flood protection; and
  • Preservation of California’s natural landscapes, including parks, forests, lakes, rivers, beaches, bays, ocean and coastline.

Included in Proposition 84 is $54 million earmarked for the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. This represents the largest public investment ever proposed on a bond measure for the Sierra.
