Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

State Water Resources Control Board: water quality certifications.


The Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act designates the State Water Resources Control Board as the state water pollution control agency for the purposes of the federal Clean Water Act and other federal acts. The act authorizes the state board to give any certificate or statement required by a federal agency pursuant to a federal act that there is reasonable assurance that an activity of any person subject to the jurisdiction of the state board will not reduce water quality below applicable standards. This bill would make technical, nonsubstantive changes to that provision.
