Save California's Waters from Oil Spills
California's state oil spill prevention and response programs are in critical danger of being cut, unless we do something about it this year. We cannot afford to jeopardize California's vital marine environment -- and the economies that depend on healthy oceans, bays, beaches, and coasts -- by the costly impacts of devastating oil spills.
California lawmakers are on track to tighten up our state's oil spill prevention standards while ensuring that there are adequate funds to manage these programs. The Oil Spill Preparedness Act (AB1112) ensures that our state's oil spill prevention and response programs will have sufficient funds to remain solvent and the ability to pay for the necessary oversight and safeguards on board high-risk vessels in our state's waters.
Please write to your state Senators in support of AB 1112.
