State Water Board readopts water conservation regulations

On May 9, 2016 Governor Brown issued an Executive Order calling for the State Water Board to adjust emergency water conservation regulations in response to changing water supply conditions across the state. The revised regulations allowed individual suppliers to self-certify that there would be no supply shortfall, even after three additional drought years. The current regulation is scheduled to expire Feb. 28 by operation of law if not readopted. However, the State Water Board voted to extend the regulation for an additional three months in order to get a full picture of the hydrological water conditions for 2016-2017.

Jeffery Lewis

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has never been a high-profile agency, but it now has a high-profile Secretary in renowned neurosurgeon and one-time presidential candidate Ben Carson. Some see Carson's lack of experience in housing policy as a shortcoming. But with no policy legacy to defend (and no political axes to grind), Carson is ideally positioned to champion the kind of creative, nonpartisan, pragmatic solutions that low and moderate income Americans desperately need.
