Governor Brown Issues Statewide Water Restrictions

Hosted by

Governor Brown today stood on dry grass where there's normally five feet of snow and announced a set of mandatory water restrictions after four years of drought. The new restrictions were immediately criticized by the group Food and Water Watch, as well as others, for letting big agriculture and the oil industry off the hook. Felicia Marcus is Chair of the Governor's Water Resources Control Board.
