I was incorrect in stating that the bond legislation had passed the
Assembly.  Here's a copy of a message from one who is informed on the status
of the legislation:

 

"The Assembly has not actually voted on or approved anything yet.  They are
in floor session this evening as I write this (7:45 pm) and the TV screen on
the internet shows both the Assembly Democrats and Republicans having a
caucus.  However, around noon today I did see bill language supposedly
endorsed by the Assembly Speaker that allocates something like $500-750
million for surface storage, to be available for commencing construction on
Sites, Temperance Flat or the rebuild of the dam at Lake Perris.  The funds
would be to cover the public benefits of such projects and could only be
spent (assuming the voters approved the bond measure) via a 2/3rds vote of
the Legislature.  Here's a link to view via internet TV the Assembly Floor
session:
