One thing about power is some folks want to control anything and everything. Water has been on of those issues, and will continue to be, at shocking levels in part of the world. One of the most oppressive taxes is a tax on drinking water...Washington had it, put in by the legislature, against the will of the people and when we got a chance to vote on it, we got rid of it. For a while, it became just a bit more expensive for me to buy and rotate my bottled water. The good thing is, with something like this, legislators in other states see some new tax, chomp on the bit to do it, but when it's rejected soundly, it might spare some folks in some states. Their attempts to tax us for water, and saying that 'every drop of rain that falls belongs to the state' some years back made International news as arrogant oppression.
