More Protection for Rivers Sought-Senate Bill 2975

To All,

The Senate passed AB 2975 by Assembly member Laura Friedman.

This bill provides a mechanism for the state to include river segments in its wild and scenic river system, should the Trump administration remove them from the federal system.

If you can nudge the Governor so sign this, please do it.

Thanks to Sierra Club staff (and others) for shepherding this through.



Representative Laura Friedman is also fighting against the Mohave grab. (“For her part, Assembly member Friedman contends that, “California must protect its land and water in the face of dangerous threats such as the Cadiz water mining project, which would drain 16 billion gallons of water each year from the Mojave Desert. There is no time to waste in saving this picture-postcard landscape.”)

She’s a real water warrior…..
