The original vote to put the $11.1 billion water bond on the ballot cleared the Legislature by one vote. Last night's vote to move the bond to 2012 was even closer.
The bill, AB 1265, got the bare minimum two-thirds vote for passage in both houses.
The Senate approved AB 1265 27-7, with four members not voting.
In the Assembly, where lobbying for votes stretched into the night, the final vote was 54-22. Four members did not record a vote in the lower house.
