AB3030, the controversial state bill measure that outdoors groups are very skeptical of, if not staunchly opposed to, will be discussed on Wednesday in the California State Senate hearings.
Here’s more from the Coastal Conservation Association of California:
California’s Assembly Bill 3030 has been scheduled to be heard by the California State Senate’s Natural Resource and Water Committee on August 5th, beginning at 9am. Also being heard is Assembly Bill 1949, which would change the statutory language of the Ocean Resource Enhancement and Hatchery Program (OREHP).
CCA California has been leading the effort of opposition to AB3030 with multiple coalitions that consist of many different organizations and companies both in the fishing industry and outside. AB3030 is designed to “protect” 30% of all land, water and ocean in California by 2030. This is part of a global movement to protect up to 50% eventually.
