Dems Rally to Appoint a Water Council for CA

Yesterday, Democratic lawmakers announced a series of bills that would assign a council specifically to govern water conservation in the San Joaquin Delta. As we have mentioned in recent blog posts, The Delta is very important to the water supply in California. From discussions of canals and tunnels to regulations regarding fish safety, it is becoming apparent that determining what to do with the delta is a major issue.

There are not yet many details about what exactly the proposed bills would entail, but it seems likely that a council focused solely on the issue is in order. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued a short statement, noting that this issue is very important and the time to deal with it is now. He promised bipartisanship and looks forward to seeing the details unfold.
