But the money to change that — what’s being called a “water tax” in state Capitol circles — is where the politics get complicated. Newsom’s proposal, which borrows from a failed 2018 effort, would impose a monthly charge of about 95 cents on most Californians — $10 a month for large water users. Smaller fees, in terms of total revenue collected, would be imposed on fertilizer, milk and farming facilities.
