The article reports on a legislative bill proposed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger which plans to invest $35 billion in water supply and flood control. It was a part of the controversial $222-billion Strategic Growth Plan to improve everything from roads to schools proposed in his annual State-of-the-State address. But, the legislators he was addressing, still drying out from a New Year's storm and mindful of the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in the Gulf, were happy to hear that levees would be a priority. Schwarzenegger's plan calls for updating more than 1 million acres of floodplain maps to guide development.
