Tell your CA state senator to support SB-50, the Public Lands Protection Act. According to bill architect Senator Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica), “We have a sacred duty to take whatever actions we can to protect public lands from any sale or lease that would result in their loss or degradation. SB-50 will put the state in a strong position to defend federal lands in California against those threats.”
For more information about why passing SB-50 matters, check out this Salon.com article about how Republicans in D.C. are limiting the ability of individual citizens to participate in debates about federal land use.
