Mon., May 15, 2017: Swing critical California districts in 2018 starting now through Working America. Protect your community and state from offshore oil drilling through legislative advocacy training from the Committee for Green Foothills.
COMMUNITY ADVOCACY: MAKE A DIFFERENCE LOCALLY
The Committee for Green Foothills – protecting open space and natural resources in Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties through environmental advocacy, education, and community empowerment
Most land decisions are LOCAL decisions. The only people paying attention are developers and those who can profit off of it. YOU AND I can make a difference.
State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson has introduced amendments to SB188, which would prohibit the State Lands Commission from approving new pipelines. State jurisdiction applies to coastal waters up to 3 miles offshore. So any offshore oil drilling operations would have no pipelines to get their oil to shore. San Mateo County already prohibits onshore oil facilities – this would also prohibit offshore drilling.
Working America is an established organization, 3 million strong, solely dedicated to canvassing, which will be working to turn the House and California in 2018!
