Farm Team Action Alert: STOP California Coastal Commission tyranny STOP AB 226 STOP AB 291.

Friday, August 28th, 2009

Please take action on the following FARM TEAM ACTION ALERT.

We need the farmers - and the farmers need us!

Action Alert

Coastal Commission Bills Await Floor Vote

Two bills that would have major impacts on property owners in the Coastal zone are headed to the Senate floor for a vote.

AB 226 (Ruskin) and AB 291 (Saldaña) grant the California Coastal Commission (CCC) with new authority in determining violations, imposing penalties and administering the permitting process.

Considering California’s current budget situation, this is likely an attempt to increase revenues for the commission in order to maintain a budget the commission feels it deserves.

Stop the power grab and take action today by clicking on the bill numbers below!

AB 226 (Ruskin, D-Redwood City) Oppose

Increases the role of government by granting new authority to the California Coastal Commission to impose massive civil penalties for violation of the Coastal Act.  The bill would allow for penalties to be imposed after a simple hearing of the Commission as opposed to due process afforded through the judicial system.

AB 291 (Saldaña, D-San Diego) Oppose

Increases the role of government by granting new authority to the California Coastal Commission that prohibits a landowner from even submitting a coastal development permit if they are merely accused of a violation of the Coastal Act.

The State Legislature only has until September 11 to take action on the remaining bills.  Make sure your voice is heard today!
