Despite efforts by Khosla's lobbying team to kill SB 968 in Appropriations last week, a majority of Senators voted to pass the bill out of committee and on to the Senate floor. Just before 5pm yesterday, the Senate passed SB 968 with a vote of 22 to 11. The bill will move on to the Assembly for consideration.
Needless to say, we are STOKED! Our full press release on the matter can be viewed here.
Now, to gear up for the Assembly...
Citizens can take action to support the bill in the Assembly by writing a letter to their Assemblymember here: http://tinyurl.com/pass-sb968.
Citizens are also encouraged to write their Senator in response to the Senator's vote for or against SB 968 and public beach access.
