LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1422, Perea. Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act of 2012: submission to voters.
Existing law creates the Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act of 2012, which, if approved by the voters, would authorize the issuance of bonds in the amount of $11,140,000,000 pursuant to the State General Obligation Bond Law to finance a safe drinking water and water supply reliability program.
