Schwarzenegger on water

The governor in his State of the State address — check out the prepared version — looked back fondly on what he considers a crowning achievement: November’s water deal.

But On the Public Record says ENOUGH with this talk about a “literal water war.”

Here are the water excerpts from Schwarzenegger’s speech:

Another major accomplishment: for decades this state was in a literal war over water, with old and deep divisions, Northern California versus Southern California, Democrat versus Republican, farmer versus environmentalist, business versus labor.

We here in this room made history with the most comprehensive water package in nearly half a century.

Working together, we got it done.

And now we must work to pass the 11 billion dollars in water bonds that will be on the ballot in November….

Our economy cannot grow without water. Our population cannot live without water. It is our state’s lifeblood.

Now is exactly the time to invest in it, so that when Californians turn on the faucet, there is safe, reliable and clean water coming out the tap — not just five years from now but 30, 40 or 50 years.
