State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss on Wednesday recommended reconsidering raising the state's water tariffs. Lindenstrauss made the comments during a meeting of the State Comptroller Committee in the Knesset. "Since water is a commodity for all state residents, the rate increase in water taxes is likely to seriously hurt those with limited means who are weak," Lindenstrauss said. A 25 percent price rise is slated for January, followed by another 15% increase in June 2010.
