A water bond that would replace the more expensive $11 billion bond on the November ballot has stalled in the California assembly. In an interview Tuesday with Capital Public Radio’s Capitol Bureau Chief Ben Adler, Speaker Atkins (D-San Diego) says there will be no water bond deal this week before lawmakers leave for their summer recess.
The state senate failed to broker a $10.5 billion water bond deal last week while Governor Jerry Brown continues pushing his own $6 billion water bond. Atkins believes the assembly can reach a deal in August for its $8 billion water bond.
