State of Emergency in January 2014, and escalating to declaring the first mandatory water reductions in 2015, California saw a shift towards conserving water on a level not previously seen. The state saw success in reducing its overall water consumption by 25 percent from 2013 levels. With this groundswell of conservation momentum, the Governor released his plan, Making Water Conservation a California Way of Life. This plan, along with a number of water conservation bills, will shape the future of California’s water conservation and use landscape.

In July, the Legislature passed and the Governor signed legislation to extend the Cap-and-Trade market mechanism through 2030. With this step complete, leaders have now begun conversations about how to spend the revenues. Both the Senate and Assembly budget subcommittees held hearings introducing the discussion of how to expect Cap-and-Trade revenues and hear public testimony. The League testified at both hearings to express our priorities for funding.
