Stalled Water Bond Deal


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.
