Capital Public Radio's Ben Adler will give a recap on the discussion lawmakers are having about replacing to the $11 billion water bond currently set to go before voters in November. He reported this week that the governor is opposing the existing water bond, which was negotiated by former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and lawmakers in 2009, and wants a $6 billion bond instead.
Meanwhile, Senate Republicans rejected a $10.5 billion proposed replacement bond from Senate Democrats. That measure does contain $3 billion for storage, but GOP lawmakers criticized a provision that would give authority on how to spend $900 million in Delta ecosystem restoration to a state agency called the Delta Conservancy, rather than the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
