Dear Friend,

Nearly fifty years ago, America marked the first Earth Day in response to the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill, igniting the modern environmental movement. Since then, we have made progress protecting our oceans and coastlines, promoting alternative energy, and conserving resources, but we have a lot more work to do.

Climate change is already threatening our communities with catastrophic wildfires, rising ocean temperatures and prolonged periods of drought. In addition, the Trump Administration continues to undermine our progress with efforts to roll back environmental regulations and expand offshore oil drilling.

I remain steadfast in my commitment to protect our environment. This year, I introduced legislation to strengthen pipeline safety requirements, reduce tobacco waste in our oceans and coastlines, and require oil companies to address the environmental impacts of oil production. In addition, I introduced a resolution to reaffirm California's opposition to a federal expansion of oil drilling off our coast. You can read more about my legislation on my website.

Also of note, my SB 834-which was signed into law last year to block the Trump Administration from expanding offshore oil in state waters-continues to serve as a model for states that oppose a federal expansion of oil drilling off their coasts, including New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Oregon, and Rhode Island.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Please do not hesitate to contact me at (916) 651-4019 or (805) 965-0862.

It is an honor to serve,

Sincerely,
