SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The Latest on California’s flood problems (all times local):
California Gov. Jerry Brown wants to spend $437 million on immediate flood control and emergency response actions in the storm-drenched state.
Brown said Friday he would do that by redirecting $50 million from the state general fund and requesting a $387 million appropriation from the voter-approved 2014 Proposition 1 water bond.
Both actions require approval by the state Legislature, and Brown is asking that it be done as soon as possible.
Brown also is seeking updates on flood inundation maps and emergency action plans as well as enhanced dam inspections.
The governor says California has nearly $50 billion in unmet flood-management infrastructure needs.
