Another of those days

I believe I mentioned in an earlier post that April was a busy month for me. Today is one of those busy days. I’ve two appointments this morning and another this afternoon.

Busy, busy, busy.

See y’all tomorrow.

If you thirst for news you won’t find on the MSM, check out this piece from California. Governor Moonbean’s water dictate is unconstitutional. Well, part of it. Let’s see if the libs are crazy enough to defy the courts.

California drought: Court rules tiered water rates violate state constitution

In a ruling with major implications for California’s water conservation efforts during the historic drought, a state appeals court on Monday ruled that a tiered water rate structure used by the city of San Juan Capistrano to encourage saving was unconstitutional.

The Orange County city used a rate structure that charged customers who used small amounts of water a lower rate than customers who used larger amounts.

But the 4th District Court of Appeal struck down San Juan Capistrano’s fee plan, saying it violated voter-approved Proposition 218, which prohibits government agencies from charging more for a service than it costs to provide it.

The stakes are high because at least two-thirds of California water providers, including many in the Bay Area, use some form of the tiered rate system.

Gov. Jerry Brown immediately lashed out at the decision, saying it puts “a straitjacket on local government at a time when maximum flexibility is needed. My policy is and will continue to be: Employ every method possible to ensure water is conserved across California.”

Brown added state lawyers are now reviewing the decision.
