If he follows through, he won’t have to worry about a fine from his home owners association. Governor Jerry Brown just signed a law that makes it illegal for HOA’s to fine members who stop watering their landscaping during a drought.

“I think it’s a very good start, people will have to be given incentives to be brave and change how their lawns look to be water wise, I know there’s a convention of what lawns are supposed to look like, I think it’s time to change,” said Getz.
The new law signed by Gov. Brown goes into effect immediately.
