I am a native Californian over 60 years of age and I have never felt the need to contact my legislative representative until now. I just heard that the California Air Resources Board (CARB) was awarded a budget of over $850 million. This is the same agency that has perpetrated the largest toxic contamination of a public water supply in history.
Why are they being rewarded with a larger budget and not being held accountable for wasting hundreds of millions in taxpayer dollars? (maybe billions) When the state is bankrupt, thousands of good teachers are losing their jobs, and millions of Californians are out of work, how can you justify the continued funding of an agency that has become the laughing stock of the entire country?
