The California League of Food Processors (CLFP) is strongly opposed to Senate Bill 1317 by Senator Wolk that recently passed the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee. This measure relates to conditional use permits and groundwater extraction facilities. More specifically, SB 1317 would require a city or county overlying a basin designated as a high or medium priority basin to establish a process for issuing conditional use permits for the development of a groundwater extraction facility in order to prevent that facility from contributing to or creating an "undesirable result."
