Today, Governor Jerry Brown signed a package of three bills that establishes a new structure for managing groundwater in the state.  According to the Governor’s press release, AB 1739, SB 1168 and SB 1319 “create a framework for sustainable, local groundwater management for the first time in California history.”   Western Growers and numerous agriculture groups opposed the collective of bills and recently sent a letter to the governor asking for a veto of the package.
