California Democrat Governor Jerry Brown isn’t seeking re-election this term, so naturally, he’s signing as many draconian laws as a possible and using police state tactics to establish total government control over citizens through unilateral laws.
According to Breitbart, Brown recently signed two bills into law that force water districts and municipalities to permanently adopt aggressive water rationing levels. If citizens don’t comply, they could be hit with a fine of up to $10,000 per day.
The mandatory water standards also mean it’s now more than likely illegal to shower and do a load of laundry in the same day because residents will exceed their daily water “ration.”
The laws are in response to the state often being plagued by droughts, but the new solution brought forward by liberals is utterly insane.
Senate Bills 606 and 1668 state that a “governing body” will oversee all water suppliers — both public and private — and will require extensive paperwork from all utility companies on how much water each home uses.
The state will literally be watching everyone’s every move and waiting to slap them with a massive fine if they dare to use more water than they are “allowed.”
This bill will not only possibly makes it illegal to do a load of laundry and take a shower on the same day, it will require farmers to jump through more hoops and create water management programs to adhere to California’s new laws.
Both bills explicitly state that if a resident violates the law in a “critically dry year” or one in which the governor issues a state of emergency, they can be fined “ten thousand dollars ($10,000) for each day in which the violation occurs.”
All of the other violations carry a $1,000 fine each day in which the violation occurs.
As insane and highly controversial as these new laws are, they could extend to other parts of the country.
California’s stringent measures could set a dangerous precedent, where other states may enact similar restrictive laws that have a major impact on citizens.
Imagine accidentally forgetting that it’s against the law to take a shower and do a load of laundry on the same day. And, if a resident does do that, he or she could be hit with a $1,000 fine. Other states across the country could impose similar laws on its residents, which would be very bad news.
The country is interlinked, which means a draconian law in one area can easily spread to many other parts of the country.
