Paso Robles water bill escapes Senate
August 13, 2014
A bill seeking establishment of a water management district for the Paso Robles aquifer, AB 2453, easily passed the California Senate Wednesday evening on a 29-3 vote.
The measure, by Assemblyman Katcho Achadjian (R-San Luis Obispo), now goes back to the Assembly for agreement .
Earlier this week, Achadjian solicited opinions on his bill via email from members of the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors. Four of the board members expressed support, said the assemblyman, and Debbie Arnold of the Fifth District has taken a neutral position.
The district’s eventual formation will likely be decided by the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) following filing of petitions by supporters.
