11:30-12:00 Media availability with committee members
12:00-3:00 PM Informational hearing and public comment

California voters have not passed a water bond since 2006.  The Legislature passed a water bond in 2009, but it has been postponed twice due to concerns that it is a flawed proposal.  At the same time, the state faces drought and the effects of climate change that threaten access to clean, affordable, and reliable sources of water.  This hearing will focus on the new bond proposal under consideration by the Legislature and how it relates to Central Coast water needs and concerns.
