Ask Governor Brown to Save CEQA from GOP 5

Ask Governor Brown to Save CEQA from GOP 5

Five Republican state senators are holding Governor Jerry Brown hostage. The GOP solons say they will not vote for the budget unless Brown guts the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The GOP 5, as they dubbed themselves in a letter to Brown, are Sam Blakeslee, San Luis Obispo; Anthony Cannella, Ceres; Bill Emmerson, Hemet; Tom Berryhill, Modesto; and Tom Harman, Huntington Beach. They are negotiating independently of their leader, Senator Bob Dutton of Rancho Cucamonga, who remains opposed to allowing voters to decide whether to extend current taxes another five years. Their proposal would sharply limit the rights of California citizens and local government agencies to enforce critical environmental protections.
