California assembly bill pushes water bond during drought

By Katy Grimes | Cal Watchdog

As the record drought intensifies, the California Legislature is working on several proposals to address the state’s lack of water storage and inadequate delivery system.

A major entry comes from Assemblyman Anthony Rendon, D-Lakewood. Assembly Bill 1331 would place a $6.5 billion bond on the Nov. 2014 ballot.

It would replace the $11.1 billion California Water Bond currently on the ballot, but which has been postponed from the 2010 and 2012 ballots because of concerns voters would reject it because of the high cost. Rendon’s bond would be more modest and targeted at specific current needs.
