In many ways 2006 was a nice return to normalcy for the California Legislature, as it operated free of the budget crisis battles that characterized and encumbered recent legislative sessions. As a result, many issues “ripped from the headlines” were addressed with timely legislation, though not always well advised. Crumbling and inadequate infrastructure throughout the state, the crucial and precarious Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta levees, and whippedup concerns about acquisition of private property by eminent domain all were addressed by the legislature in 2006. These and other new laws important to the water community are discussed below. Also discussed are certain bills vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger, some or all of which we may see again soon in a revised form.
