Assemblyman Aims to Get Water Bond on November Ballot

Assemblyman Aims to Get Water Bond on November Ballot

A California assemblyman continues his effort to get a water bond on the November ballot.

Democrat Anthony Rendon initially introduced a bill last Feburary to put an $11 billion water bond before voters.

After almost a year of reworking the bill, Rendon says it's cleaner, more affordable and tailored to meet the needs of every region in the state.

"This bond includes funding for improving drinking water quality, protecting rivers and watersheds, improving the reliability of clean water delivery, protecting the state's delta water system, and funding storage projects that will protect us from future droughts," he said. 

With two-thirds of the state now in extreme drought, Rendon says Californians should have a chance to make a choice on what's now a $6.5 billion bond this November.

His bill is now awaiting action in the Senate.
