Support SB 1 – Request to the Governor not to Veto

Link to the Governor’s Contact Page :

Honorable Gavin Newsom, Governor of California, by email direct to his office Dear Governor:

I am a registered Democrat who is very concerned about issues that are facing all of us due to ill consideration by the Trump Administration. These issues related to climate change, species loss, water quality, and the safety of all Californians. I understand you are planning to veto Senate Bill 1 by Senator Toni Atkins.  I write to appeal to you not to fall for the false promise of voluntary habitat restoration plans proposed by agribusiness water users as an excuse for taking the water required to keep our California Delta healthy. 

I hope you will reconsider this plan that would destroy California’s iconic, endangered aquatic species such as the winter and spring runs of Chinook salmon and the Delta smelt.  Commercial and sport fishers depend on these species for their living.  Please let us know what you decide to do about this critical issue currently before our state.
