California lawmakers moved closer to reaching an agreement on updating the state's aging water infrastructure on Monday. The state Senate approved a $9.99 billion bond package that would pay for water-storage projects. Lawmakers also approved a water-conservation mandate and creation of a state agency for the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Lawmakers are expected to consider additional measures today. "We're as close as the Legislature has ever been to a comprehensive statewide solution," said Assemblyman Kevin Jeffries.
