WATER BRIEFING VO/SOT

LIVE: ASSEMBLY DEMOCRATS ARE UNSURE WHETHER THEY WILL PUT THEIR OWN PLAN FORWARD TO DEAL WITH A POTENTIAL WATER SHORTAGE BROUGHT ON BY THIS YEAR'S DRY WEATHER AND AN ORDER BY A FEDERAL JUDGE THAT WILL SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF WATER THAT CAN BE PUMPED FROM THE SACRAMENTO RIVER DELTA TO FARMERS AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WATER USERS.

SUPER: TODAY/STATE CAPITOL/SACRAMENTO

SUPER: FILE/DEPARTMENT OF WATER RESOURCES VIDEO

VO: (:20) ASSEMBLYMAN JOHN LAIRD SAYS HE DOES NOT PERSONALLY SUPPORT THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW DAMS, BUT THAT ALL OPTIONS INCLUDING UNDERGROUND STORAGE, CONSERVATION AND A REHABILITATION PLAN FOR THE DELTA'S FRAGILE ECOSYSTEM BE CONSIDERED. THE GOVERNOR IS EXPECTED TO UNVEIL A NINE BILLION DOLLAR PLAN THAT WILL INCLUDE FUNDING FOR DAMS, UNDERGROUND STORAGE, DELTA REHABILITATION AND A PERIPHERAL CANAL TO MOVE WATER AROUND THE DELTA RATHER THAN THROUGH IT TO MAKE PUMPING UNNECESSARY.

SUPER: ASSEMBLYMAN JOHN LAIRD/D-SANTA CRUZ

SOT: (:21)

SAYS: "AS BUDGET CHAIR WITH A LOOMING DEFICIT NEXT YEAR, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS CHUMP CHANGE ... CAREFUL OF REALLY BIG NUMBERS."

SUPER: ASSEMBLY REPUBLICAN LEADER MIKE VILLINES/R-CLOVIS

SOT: (:14)

SAYS: "WATER AGENCIES, CONSUMERS, CITIES ... EVERYBODY WILL BENEFIT."

VO TAG: ASSEMBLYMAN JOHN LAIRD SAYS HE IS FEARFUL OF INCLUDING A PERIPHERAL CANAL ON ANY BOND MEASURE THAT WOULD REQUIRE VOTER APPROVAL BECAUSE VOTERS REJECTED SUCH A PLAN IN THE 1980'S. THE LEGISLATURE HAS UNTIL THE MIDDLE OF OCTOBER TO PASS A BOND MEASURE IN TIME TO MAKE IT ONTO THE FEBRUARY 2008 PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY SUPPLEMENTAL BALLOT.
