Not only are there Props 7 and 10, which are environmentally intentioned with heavy opposition from businesses and eco-groups alike, there is also a possible prop being pushed around by Governor Schwarzenegger and Senator Dianne Feinstein. It would be a $9.3 billion water bond, mainly for water surface storage.

And before we even know if the state legislature will approve its placement on November's ballot, nearly 40 environmental groups have already launched a large campaign against it. Those groups include Environmental Justice Coalition for Water, Southern California Watershed Alliance, California Coastkeeper Alliance, Planning and Conservation League and Sierra Club California.

"This particular bond focuses on benefiting particular interests rather than solving the drinking water crisis throughout the state or finding a way to provide a reliable and sustainable waters supply in the face of climate change," explained Mindy McIntyre of the Planning & Conservation League to LAist over the phone.
