$11 Billion Water Bond Likely To Appear On Ballot

August 5, 2011

The $11 billion water bond that was pulled from last year's statewide election will likely appear on a future ballot, according to State Senator Fran Pavley (D-Santa Monica).

According to online publication The Acorn, Senator Pavley acknowledged that "[a]ny change in that water bond, whether it’s split in half or reprioritized, requires a two-third vote from legislators. We have not yet heard the governor take a position on when this bond should go on the ballot." (Click here to view article).

The fate of proposed changes to the bond measure remain unknown. Assembly Bill 157, for example, was introduced in January 2011 to cut the bond measure to $8.25 billion. That bill is now pending in committee.
