LIVE: LAWMAKERS HAVE INDICATED THE GOVERNOR WILL ALSO CONVENE A SPECIAL SESSION TO PASS LEGISLATION THAT WOULD INCLUDE BOND FUNDS FOR FIXING THE SACRAMENTO-SAN JOAQUIN RIVER DELTA AND CONSTRUCTION OF TWO NEW DAMS.

SUPER: TODAY/STATE CAPITOL/SACRAMENTO

VO: (:20) THE CAPITOL WAS BUSY IN THE SENATE AND ASSEMBLY, WITH LOBBYISTS OUTSIDE ON WHAT IS EXPECTED TO BE THE LAST DAY OF THE REGULAR SESSION. THE LEGISLATURE IS TAKING TOMORROW AND THURSDAY OFF FOR ROSH HOSHANA AND STAFF FOR LEGISLATIVE LEADERS SAID THEY WANTED TO FINISH TODAY SO THEY WOULDN'T HAVE TO RETURN ON FRIDAY WHICH IS THE LAST SCHEDULED DAY OF THE REGULAR SESSION. THE SPECIAL SESSION WILL ALLOW LAWMAKERS TO CONTINUE TO WORK ON HEALTHCARE AND WATER PROPOSALS, WHICH THEY WERE UNABLE TO FINISH DURING THE REGULAR SESSION.

SUPER: SENATOR DAVE COGDILL/R-MODESTO

SOT: (:22)

SAYS: "THERE'S A LOT OF LANGUAGE OUT THERE FROM A NUMBER OF DIFFERENT AUTHORS, AND PROPOSALS CONCERNING WATER, SO I THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE THE SPECIAL SESSION AND I LOOK FORWARD TO BEING ABLE TO CONCENTRATE ON WATER SPECIFICALLY OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF WEEKS, AND HOPEFULLY BE ABLE TO COME TO AN AGREEMENT THIS LEGISLATURE CAN SUPPORT AND PUT BEFORE THE PEOPLE OF THIS STATE."

VO TAG: THE PROPOSALS BEING DISCUSSED INCLUDE BOND MONEY FOR THE SITES RESERVOIR IN COLUSA COUNTY, THE TEMPERANCE FLAT RESERVOIR IN FRESNO COUNTY AND EXPANSION OF LOS VAQUEROS IN CONTRA COSTA COUNTY. MONEY WOULD ALSO BE INCLUDED FOR REHABILITATION OF THE DELTA ECOSYSTEM AND A CANAL TO MOVE WATER FROM NORTHERN CALIFORNIA AROUND THE DELTA TO AVOID PUMPING WATER FROM THE DELTA WHICH IS WHAT THE STATE AND FEDERAL WATER PROJECT CURRENTLY DO. THAT PUMPING IS THREATENING SMELT AND OTHER ENDANGERED FISH AND A FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERED A REDUCTION OF THAT PUMPING. THAT DECISION COULD AFFECT DRINKING AND AGRICULTURAL WATER USED BY 25 MILLION CALIFORNIANS.

EXTRA BITES:

SUPER: SENATOR DAVE COGDILL/R-MODESTO

SOT: (:31)

SAYS: "I THINK THERE'S A LOT OF THINGS THAT HAVE COME TOGETHER TO HIGHLIGHT THIS ISSUE. WE'RE IN ONE OF THE DRIEST YEARS IN OUR HISTORY, I THINK HYDROLOGY AND CLIMATE CHANGE SEEM TO BE WELL DEFINED AND THE OVERALL GROWTH THIS STATE IS EXPERIENCING ON AN ANNUAL BASIS. WE'RE GROWING FROM A HALF TO THREE QUARTERS OF A MILLION PEOPLE A YEAR AND IT'S BEEN 30 PLUS YEARS SINCE WE ADDED MAJOR WATER INFRASTRUCTURE IN THIS STATE."

SOT: (:16)

SAYS: "YOU CAN JUST ADD ADDITIONAL SURFACE WATER STORAGE AND JUST FIX THE DELTA TO SUPPORT THIS ECONOMY AND THE PEOPLE THAT RELY ON IT."
