"As everyone knows, California is facing a critical shortage of water. We have tried to restrict water usage, but many Californians don't think the restrictions apply to them, especially if they are wealthy and feel it would be fatal to have a brown lawn. So it's time for another plan," said Brown, who sighed loudly.

California's neighboring states condemned Brown's public plan to 'borrow' water from them. Brown explained he only meant for Californians to go to states with no droughts, but refused to state that publicly when Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval (R) demanded he do so.
Governor Brown also hinted he was going to ask Californians to go to other states to "adopt drought-resistant trees and shrubs" to replace those destroyed in California's wildfires.
