We wanted to remind everyone of the meeting this next week in Sacramento, June 11th at 3pm. This is over the ridiculous new regulations they are proposing on suction dredging in California.
AMRA will be there and we plan to speak about these new regulations. We urge you, strongly urge you to show up, even if you do not own a dredge to support the small mining community which is under attack. Please be there and wear your PLP or A…MRA shirts.
