LIVE AT 10AM: Assembly Informational Hearing on The Need for a 2014 Water Bond, to discuss North Coast water issues, California’s drought and the Assembly’s water bond proposal.
“We are fortunate to have an opportunity to hold a hearing like this in Humboldt County,” Chesbro said. “Only a few of these hearings are scheduled around the state this year. The Legislature is considering a new water bond proposal, after a proposal passed in 2009 was postponed twice because it was deeply flawed. Additionally, California is now facing a deepening crisis because of record drought and the effects of climate change.”
