TODAY, Monday, August 27th call to protect Mojave desert ground water: SB-120 goes to vote tomorrow, Tuesday.
Dear MBCA Members and Supporters,
We’ve come down to the wire! We need you make two calls TODAY, Monday, August 27th to our State Senator and Assemblyman in the California legislature urging their support of SB-120 to protect Mojave Desert springs and ground water.
Even if you made calls on behalf of the previous version (AB-1000), we need you to call again now in support of SB-120!
You know about the Cadiz corporation planned project to pump 16 billion gallons of ground water each year for 50 years that would affect springs within Mojave Trails National Monument to sell to a water company in coastal Orange County.
MBCA and our conservation partners, including the National Park Conservation Association have been engaged in a lengthy struggle to defeat the Trump-backed Cadiz water-mining project.
Takes less than a minute each to make phone calls to:
Assemblyman Chad Mayes
Capitol office 916-319-2042
District office 760-346-6342
Senator Jean Fuller
Capitol office 916-651-4016
Morongo Basin office 760-228-3136
Provide the staffer who answers the phone or the answering machine:
1) your name,
2) the city you live in,
3) that you (or your business/organization) support SB-120, and
4) that you urge the Senator/Assemblyman to support SB-120 to protect California from the disastrous Cadiz project.
We have support from Senator Feinstein, Governor Brown, Lt. Governor Newsom, and Assembly Speaker Rendon, but Cadiz is a formidable opponent with power and money that is influencing the political process. Still, we have a good chance of getting this bill passed this week – with your help.
Thanks for taking a few minutes out of your day – this is a once in our life-time critical step to protect the fragile Mojave ecosystem groundwater! I know we can count on you!
