Beason says the rural counties also want to make sure that whatever comes out of the bay delta plan ,  that the people who pays the fees or whatever taxes that result are the people who get the benefit and not the people who don’t.
RCRC is also engaging in a media campaign to inform the residents of urban counties where their food fiber and water come from.

Beason says the rural counties of California have 9 percent of the population but 50 percent of real estate where all the natural resources are and they want to have a big voice.
