California Lawmakers Propose $7.2 Billion Water Bond Bill

Governor Jerry Brown and state lawmakers met with water policy stakeholders to introduce a $7.2 million dollar water bond bill. The proposal comes after lawmakers passed legislation on Monday to extend the deadline for an agreement. Lawmakers now have until Wednesday night to approve a water bond bill for the November ballot. The state's water crisis has made an agreement over the water bond a top priority for lawmakers. Nick St. Charles filed this report from Sacramento.
