SACRAMENTO – Assembly Speaker Toni G. Atkins (D-San Diego) released the following statement regarding Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.’s executive order for mandatory water restrictions due to the severity of California’s drought:

“As the drought continues to grow in depth and duration, so must our efforts to increase water conservation and efficiency in every part of the state. Our decimated snowpack shows that Governor Brown is right to put these strong, mandatory steps in place. Getting through this drought and future droughts to come will take a combination of immediate, short-range and long-term steps. The Governor’s order today is the right step at the right time. Now, it’s up to all of us to do our part.”
