California Passes Bill to Restrict Home Water Usage Beginning in 2022

California is going straight down the toilet. Just don’t flush, or you’ll use up your daily allotment of water.

The state of California recently became the first state in the U.S. to pass legislation that will put a limit on the amount of water people can use in their homes. This is what you get when you have state that is basically a desert — that and politicians that revel in the misery of its actual citizens.

According to The Blaze:

Starting in 2022, California will limit water to 55 gallons per-person, per-day. By 2030, the amount falls to 50 gallons.

To put this into perspective, just taking one eight-minute shower (17 gallons of water) and doing one load of laundry (up to 40 gallons) is enough to exceed the 55-gallon limit. Taking a bath can use 80 to 100 gallons of water.

Climate change is apparently the impetus for the new law, according to chair of the State Water Resources Control Board Felicia Marcus.

“So that everyone in California is at least integrating efficiency into our preparations for climate change,” Marcus said.

Fifty-five gallons isn’t a heck of a lot of water, especially if you have a family. The idea that they’re limiting use of household water confirms California as an authoritarian state, and the law is stupid at best. Then again, it is California.

Think about it another way, though. Typically people get a water utility bill and pay based on the amount of water they use. Since there will be a limit, will everyone’s bill be uniform? Could the bill ever go above the cost of using 50-55 gallons a day? Wouldn't the state lose money by making people use less water? Will politicians be exempt from this Far-Left law like others that shall remain nameless?

This is just another way to make everyone the same, and it gets California one step closer to becoming their dream dystopian state.
