Sorry to See Prop 3 Defeated

The Sierra Fund’s Board of Directors is sorry to see that Proposition 3, the Water Supply and Water Quality Act of 2018, was not passed by California voters in the midterm election. The Board formally endorsed two water bonds in January 2018: Proposition 3 and Proposition 68, the Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act.

Prop 68 was passed by voters in the June primary election and directs $25 million to the Sierra Nevada Conservancy to fund grant programs that address climate adaptation, land conservation and watershed improvement in the Sierra.
