UPDATE: Governors Drought Proposal - 03/19/15 11:56 S.S.

Governor Jerry Brown has proposed legislation that would accelerate the $1 billion drought-relief bond spending that voters have already approved for water and flood projects. His package of 2 bills would provide funding for immediate aid to counties facing serious water shortages (and unemployment). The aid would include money that could be spent on emergency drinking water, fish and wildlife protections and groundwater management….among others. The proposal will need majority approval from the state legislature. In the meantime, the State Water Resources Control Board has approved rules that prohibit the daily watering of lawns, and people in California will now have to ask for water when eating at a restaurant.
