LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 40, as amended, Pavley. Safe, Clean, and Reliable Drinking Water Supply Act of 2012.
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.
