Proposition 1 - The Water Bond
As one of the worst droughts in California's history enters its third year, Gov. Jerry Brown and lawmakers are asking voters to approve a $7.5 billion bond measure, Proposition 1. If passed, the state could borrow funds to pay for new reservoirs, watershed protection, water recycling and other programs. Opponents have raised concerns over the impact of building new dams and question how the measure would provide drought relief.
