Urgent: Act Today to Protect California's Premier Environmental Law
The Republican leadership in the California legislature is once again holding the state budget hostage, demanding rollbacks to California's keystone environmental law, the California Environmental Quality Act. The governor and the Democratic leadership need to hear from you today that it's unacceptable for them to give away California's environmental and public-health protections.
Environmental rollbacks have no place in the debate over the state budget. We need your voice and action to help defend the rights of Californians and protect our environment.
Here's how you can help today:
1. Use the form below to send a message to California's Democratic leadership -- Governor Jerry Brown, Senate President Darrell Steinberg, and Assembly Speaker John Pérez -- telling them to reject all Republican demands to roll back the California Environmental Quality Act or any public-health and environmental protections as part of the budget negotiations.
2. Call or fax the Democratic leadership to let them know you have a personal stake in California's public-health and environmental protections:
Governor Jerry Brown: phone (916) 445-2841, fax (916) 558-3160
Assembly Speaker John Pérez: phone (916) 319-2046, fax (916) 319-2146
Senate President Darrell Steinberg: phone (916) 651-4006, fax (916) 323-2263
