Drought Special: Q&A with Gov. Jerry Brown and L.A. Times' Austin Beutner

Originally aired June 10, 2015 

"SoCal Connected" presents a special one-hour, in-depth discussion between Governor Jerry Brown and Los Angeles Times CEO and Publisher Austin Beutner on critical water conservation issues facing the state of California. Governor Brown announced the first-ever 25 percent statewide mandatory water reductions in April and directed state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for water shortages.

Contending with the drought means navigating a complex tangle of water policies, regulations, and court decrees. The conversation will explore the role that residents, businesses, farmers, and government play in meeting our water challenges as well as how the rest of the nation is impacted by California's water policies.
