California lawmakers are considering legislation to limit deductibles for water bills, but many Californians are already struggling with high bills.
The bill, which would require people to pay for water and sewer service at least 80% of the time, has already been approved by the state senate.
The measure was introduced by Democratic state senator David Chiu and Republican state senator Ted Lieu.
Both Democrats say the bill will be a boon to Californians, who already spend an average of $2,700 on water bills a year, but have struggled with high costs.
California’s bill would allow Californians to deduct up to 80% water bills.
They could use that amount to pay off bills, and only use the remaining 20% to cover their utilities costs.
But many Californias already spend hundreds of dollars a year on water and other utilities.
Many Californias water system is owned by utilities and pays out more than $1 billion a year.
And many Californis water system has to pay out water bills on top of the bills.
Some water bills have skyrocketed, even though the state has limited the amount of water that can be sold to customers.
In 2017, California sold 8.5 billion gallons of water, more than any other state, according to a study by the California Water Policy Institute.
More than 100 million Californias residents have been served by the water system since it was founded in 1848.
The system has a capacity of 7,600,000 acre feet (150 million cubic meters) of water per day.
The water system was created as a way to reduce the amount that could be sold for water.
The state began selling water in the early 1800s.
The state is one of the top water-consuming states in the United States.
In 2016, it reported a $1.2 billion surplus.
In recent years, the water crisis in California has been exacerbated by the drought.
The drought has forced water users to ration supplies, and has also cut off water from a vast portion of the state.
The latest drought has put more water users on the brink of financial ruin.
The drought has also led to increased demand for water from the utilities.
Water utilities, like the California Public Utilities Commission, have been forced to shut off water supplies.
In December, the commission warned that a potential $50 billion shortfall in water supplies could come in 2018, unless state officials act.
The California Water policy Institute says water use and drought in California is expected to increase from 2020 through 2036, with an increase of about 4% in total water use.
