The state budget has now passed both houses of the Legislature.
And, thanks in part to your hard work and activism, Assembly Democrats killed a Republican-backed budget bill that would have allowed offshore drilling in state-controlled waters off California’s coast for the first time since the devastating 1969 oil spill off the Santa Barbara coast.
Not a single Assembly Democrat voted in favor of this sweetheart deal for one oil company. They recognized that it would have been bad for the environment and it would have done little if anything to solve California’s current or systemic budget problems.
Please join me in congratulating Assembly Democrats for taking this stand for our environment.
And I thank all of you for your activism around this issue.
Peace and friendship,
