Wed. – Sun 10/13: The Governor’s deadline to sign laws is THIS SUNDAY! (4) HUGE actions! – UPDATED

Action #1 – UPDATE! Ask the Governor to sign AB 342 – “No New Oil Leases Act.” Oil pumps coming to a neighborhood near you! 

Update 10/13/19:

  • AB 342 Public lands” leasing: oil and gas: prohibition APPROVED BY THE GOVERNOR.

On Friday, while we were tranfixed by the political soap opera which is now our presidency, the Trump administration announced it would make 725,000 acres in California’s central coast open to oil and gas lease sales, ending a five-year moratorium. The BLM, ignoring 400 public comments and scientific research to facilitate the administration’s “energy dominion” policy, is now putting both the land, wildlife and people in Alameda, Contra Costa, Fresno, Merced, Monterey, San Benito, San Joaquin, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Stanislaus Counties at increased risk of toxic pollution.

The BLM is also looking closer to home with a proposal to conduct new oil and gas development on 1.6 million acres of public land in an area which covers Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Tulare and Ventura counties, includes about 400,000 acres of public land and 1.2 million acres of federal mineral estate, according to the report.

Let’s make this as hard as possible. State lawmakers passed AB 342  to deter companies from drilling on federal land. The bill would prohibit the construction of new oil and gas infrastructure on state land if it is being built to support production of oil and natural gas upon protected federal lands and is sitting on Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk since 9/12.

Action #2 – Stop being such babies, CA legislature. OVERRIDE NEWSOM’s veto of SB-1!

The Governor is threatening to veto Senate Bill 1, the most important environmental bill this year!
Please call Governor Newsom today to help make sure he signs this vitally important bill
SB 1 resists the Trump Administration’s rollback of key federal environmental protections.
It makes sure that state environmental laws—the California Endangered Species Act, the California Clean Air Act, and major state water laws—fill in any gaps in environmental protection created by the Trump rollbacks. 

The bill faced major opposition from certain agricultural and water agency interests that fear the bill will force scientific information to be taken into account as new water projects are considered. These interests support Trump’s environmental rollback agenda, and now they have the Governor’s ear.
