PARADISE, CALIF. -   The $202 billion budget signed by Governor Gavin Newsom Monday evening includes the $7.3 million promised to the Paradise Irrigation District to help sustain it following the devastating Camp Fire.

The funding is considered critical to providing clean water to residents for rebuilding efforts.

The money was not included in the Governor's May revise budget proposal but was included in the final spending plan. 

Republican Senator Jim Nielsen of Tehama said, "Camp Fire survivors spoke up loud and clear. I thank the people of Paradise for their strength and courage to continue the fight to rebuild their Town.

Republican Assemblyman James Gallagher commented, "It's ridiculous that this was such a budget battle to begin with. the town of Paradise has already suffered through so much ... "

Most of the Town of Paradise was destroyed and 84 people were killed in the Camp Fire in November of 2019, caused by PG&E's faulty electrical lines.
