$7.5 Billion Water Bond For California Approved By State Senate

This “Water Quality, Supply and Infrastructure Improvement Act of 2014” will be on the November ballot and replace a $11.1 billion water bond measure that was proposed back in 2009.

If approved, the water bond would fund water storage projects, ecosystem and watershed projects, projects that clean up groundwater contamination, water recycling and advanced water treatment technology, as well as projects to improve water quality or promote clean drinking water.

“There is a great deal to be pleased with in this compromise measure: It shaves nearly 4 billion in bond debt off the existing bond measure, which saves our kids from that amount in debt load for the future; it nearly meets all that Republicans asked for in water storage monies; and while the conveyance of that storage remains unclear, there is a commitment from Governor Brown to meet that need with follow up legislation next year,” according to a  news release from Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for regions across California to become more self-sufficient in meeting their water supply needs,” according to a statement from state Sen. Fran Pavley.

Three other Wilk bills — AB 1707, AB 2058, and AB 1130 — passed the senate floor Wednesday, which means they are headed back to the Assembly for a final vote before they’re sent to Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk.

“AB 1707 requires the State Water Resources Control Board to post on their website the external peer review studies when a regional board changes a community’s regulatory standards, affording community access to science based regulation decisions,” according to a news release.

“AB 2058 solidifies public access to meetings of state entities by ensuring that all standing committees are subject to the transparency of open meeting regulations, regardless of the size of its membership,” according to Wilk’s office. “AB 1130 streamlines the application process required of out-of-state applicants for a home protection company license, encouraging out-of-state businesses to come to California.”
