Hey neighbor, how about helping out with some activism?
All three bills are up that day. This is truly an emergency.
Let's see... That's a Tuesday so how many can we get there without talkshow host help. We better get Mark Williams, Tom Sullivan and the KSFO morning show with Melanie Morgan involved quickly. We don't have the votes or the influence to stop this without some kind of media help!!! Petitions with signatures would be helpful...

A.B. No. 2064 Goldberg. Parks and recreation: urban areas.

Mark Williams is all caught up in the War stuff. Tom might. I had been meaning to bring this to his attention. It will kill CA's economy. He might be the best bet.
I have no plans to attend the hearings however.
It will be easy to oppose more enviro stuff after the spotted owl, the sucker fish, eco-terrorists (#1 terrorist threat says the FBI), MTBE, the original smog check 2, tens of thousands of enviro-(mis)managed forest land acres lost to fires, Kyoto's redistribution of wealth from developed nations to developing nations (the "free" traders are doing that task now), "rural cleansing," and hundreds more reasons.
Thanks! I keep a rights, farm, environment ping list as well as a Sac Area list. Let me know if you want to be on them. Keep in touch.
CA freepers, RED ALERT RED ALERT!!!
CA freepers, RED ALERT Thread 2
A Sierra umbrella? - Conservancy proposed to protect mountain range
Mark needs to shift to something that effects a huge portion of his listening audience much more directly than the WOT!!! He usually loves to get after Schwarzenegger at every opportunity... well, here's a biggie!!!
Sure seems to me... If there ever was a cause for CA FReepers to oppose... This is it!!!
If you know the details well enough already pass some information to Dr. Bill Wattenburg through http://www.pushback.com/ or through the deficient call letter station in San Francisco. Maybe he will at least comment on it on his weekend shows. I'm pretty sure he lives in the Sierras now.
Thanks for the links. There has been alot of info on these bills I see.
Thanks. We need all the help we can get.
Yes, we've been tracking them since early April at least. Most here don't seem to remember that the Sierra Conservancy was one of Arnold's campaign promises.
On another thread in a reply, Analysis from the legislature itself on AB 2631, says this is about non-native, undocumented pests.
The Analysis agrees that "the underlying idea of better coordinating state (and federal) efforts" is a good idea. Of course there are important reasons to oppose it nevertheless.
IMO even if it was not another one of those enviro-wacko attempts to take advantage of a problem and impose further restrictions on private property ("rural cleansing") there's good reason to oppose it. The Governor already has a major effort to better coordinate state bureaucratic activities.
Gee I hope they can keep those harmful non-native, undocumented pests away from our highways. They're bad enough now, worst in the country.
Well, I can forget suggesting you contact AM 1380's morning host. He appears pretty much in Arnold's pocket.
BTTT for America!
