Stop AB 1492 -- Timber industry giveaway restricts the public’s rights and saddles Californians with an unnecessary tax
Please contact your California State Senators, Assemblymembers and Governor and urge them to vote NO on AB 1492. This embarrassing piece of legislation is poised to fly through the California legislature this week without any substantive debate whatsoever. It is clearly a cynical attempt by wealthy timber barons at Sierra Pacific Industries and Green Diamond Resource Company to hoodwink the public into paying for damaging logging plans and to tie the hands of prosecutors that attempt to bring claims against the timber giants for causing forest fires that threaten communities and California’s public forests. Please take action now and tell the governor and state legislators to vote NO on AB 1492!
