California’s Brown Reaches $7.2 Billion Drought Bond Deal

Governor Jerry Brown and California Democratic lawmakers enlisted business support of a $7.2 billion plan composed mostly of new bonds for water storage and delivery to drought-stricken cities and farms.

Brown, a 76-year-old Democrat, was joined today by the heads of the California Farm Bureau, the state Chamber of Commerce and California Alliance for Jobs in urging legislators to put the bond measure on the November ballot.
