Water Conservation and Emergency Drought Relief Legislation SUBMITTED BY SENATE MAJORITY LEADER ELLEN M. CORBETT (D-EAST BAY ) Although precious rain recently fell on our local communities, I have had scores of conversations over the last few weeks and months with local residents at farmers’ markets, town halls and community events about a topic that remains at the forefront of our minds: California’s drought. Unfortunately, the recent rainfall has only minimally impacted our depleting water supply. Further aggravated by a low snow pack, California’s severe water crisis has prompted Governor Jerry Brown to declare a Drought State of Emergency. California State Senate leadership accepted the Governor’s call to action by developing a proposal allocating over half a billion dollars to implement shovel-ready water projects in communities throughout the state, assist agricultural communities and prevent drinking water shortages. Fortunately, the legislation passed quickly through the Legislature and the Governor promptly signed it so we can deliver much needed relief to local communities. The Tri-Valley water agency, Zone 7, is receiving only 5% of its normal water allocation from the state, for example. As a longtime advocate for our environment and local communities, I will continue working closely with my colleagues in Sacramento to address pertinent water issues to help secure California’s water future. It is crucial

that we recognize local water districts that have responded quickly and appropriately to address water reliability and conservation. The Governor has instructed state agencies to begin water conservation efforts and has recommended—though not yet mandated—that state residents reduce their water use by 20%. State water agencies must work collaboratively with stakeholders and residents to manage California’s water supply, while simultaneously assist farmers and communities that are most impacted by the drought. As a result of the ongoing dry conditions, the state has begun a statewide public awareness campaign called “Save our H2O.” As Californians, we can conserve water by implementing some of the daily tips offered by “Save our Water” at SaveOurH20.org, such as: • Take shorter showers, use a lowflow shower head and turn off water whenever possible. • Place mulch around plants and combine with a drip system to conserve gallons of water each time you water outdoors. • Plant drought-resistant trees and plants that are most appropriate for your climate. Please also consult my Senate website at http://sd10.senate.ca.gov/ where I have posted additional important information—both in English and Spanish—regarding water conservation and drought measures. You can find more information at the following websites from water agencies and water districts in the 10th State Senate District:

I have heard recently from some constituents that they are worried that they may be penalized for voluntarily cutting back on water use, if and when, water rationing becomes mandatory, as it has in some communities in the 10th District and in other parts of the state. Water districts assure me that is not the case, so please continue to do your part to help our state and local communities. As the State Senator representing the 10th District, I am committed to combating the drought’s impact on residents, communities and our environment and I look forward to partnering with you to address California’s long term water needs.

State Board of Equalization receives recognition SUBMITTED BY BRIAN MILLER The California State Board of Equalization (BOE) received two statewide awards from the California Association of Public Information Officials (CAPIO) for its newly redesigned website and informative use tax video series. CAPIO, an organization of public communication professionals, honored the BOE with a first place Award of Excellence for its reengineered website, www.boe.ca.gov, and an Award of Distinction for its use tax video series. “These honors spotlight the hard work of our BOE staff in developing customer-focused tools designed to make it easier for businesses to partner with the BOE and to increase voluntary compliance,” said Executive Director Cynthia Bridges. The BOE’s new website, developed by BOE employees and unveiled in August, is customer-friendly and task-oriented. The website was built with California tax and fee payers in mind, and incorporated many of their suggestions. The CAPIO judges said they were wowed by the transformation and stressed that, “The site was a refreshing approach to government website design and a huge improvement!” Watch a video highlighting the new BOE website at: http://bit.ly/BOEWebPromo
