Water Bond May Be Delayed Until 2010

As the San Francisco Chronicle explains in this article (here), the Governor wants to put a water bond measure on the California ballot. However, "[u]nder the state Constitution, the Legislature can place bond measures on the ballot only during a regularly scheduled statewide election. The next one is scheduled for June 2010. The governor's staff has indicated that Schwarzenegger would have to use the initiative process if he wants the water question to go before voters next year. To do so, he'll have to use his campaign committee to launch a petition drive and will have to get moving quickly."
