Emergency Action Needed on SB637

Emergency action needed:

We just learned that the public comment period for SB 637 ends tomorrow. The entire Resource Committee needs to hear from you. People, this is urgent and crucial we call them and tell them not to pass this bill. If would effectively end suction dredging in CA, and we all know, it would roll to other states right after CA.

Here is the link to the bill:

One thought on “Emergency Action Needed on SB637”

  1. I’ve got plenty of time today to call in protest! Do you have any suggested opposition verbiage or will simply telling them NOT to pass the bill be sufficient?
