Governor Jerry Brown tweeted a photo Friday afternoon signing emergency drought relief into law.

Legislators approved the $1 billion plan on Thursday.

Nearly two-thirds of the money goes to flood protection.

But critics say it won't solve the drought.

Governor Brown stresses this only builds on the need to conserve water.

He's calling on all Californians to reduce their water use by 20 percent.
