CSPA Advisory 6.25.08. AB 1806 passes Senate Committee
Date: Wed, 25 Jun 2008 15:17:37 --0007

On June 24th, AB 1806 was voted forward by the
Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee.

Following testimony by John Beuttler, Conservation Director for CSPA,Dick Pool, coordinator of Water for Fish, John Ryzanych, from the Allied Fishing Groups, Gary Adams, president of the California Striped Bass Association, Jim Martin, West Coast Director of the Recreational Fishing Alliance (RFA), Zeke Grader, executive director of the Pacific Coast Federation
of Fisheries Assocation (PCFFA), and Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla,campaign coordinator of Restore the Delta, the bill passed bya 5-2 vote.

Opposing the bill were some of the most powerful water agenciesin California. Their lobbyists, influence and money could not stop the passage of this bill in committee because YOU made it known that this bill is important to you through your letters.

The CSPA board will plan the next move at a strategy meeting tonight. The campaign will most likely involve more letter writing and possibly an additional call for bodies at future hearings.

Please be ready to participate in the next step in this bill's progress. It will mean millions of dollars for delta restoration and a step towards a healthy delta for us and our grandchildren.

Thank YOU!
