Schwarzenegger Praises Water Package

Sacramento, CA — Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger says it is a major victory that a water package will go before voters in 2010.

“This is without any doubt the greatest and comprehensive water infrastructure package in the history of California,” said Schwarzenegger at a Sacramento press conference. “The infrastructure that was built five decades ago by (Governor) Pat Brown was for 18 million people, we now have 38 million people, and in the next 15 years we are going to have 50 million people. This project will take that long to get it completed.”

The $11 billion would help pay for dams, underground water storage, water recycling, restoration of the delta and regional projects.
