Requiring farmers to pay fair market value for water will eliminate the water shortage. It might also eliminate most of California's farming, but that's a small part of the states income so it won't be missed. Politically the easier solution is to allow the cities to buy up the farms and take their water rights.

We need to eliminate corporate income tax, they are too good at hiding their money. We need to shift the tax load to other things that are harder to hide. Polution comes to mind. Also we should make payroll and benefits a tax deduction for the corporation instead of business expenses, as this will encourage them to keep the jobs at home.
