AMRA Call to Action--California State Bill 1222

Recommended Posts

For all you Californians out there, contact your State Senators.  I'm sure many, many liberal environmentalists have let your representatives know, so an opposing view would be nice. 

Received the bill below from the AMRA with a copy and paste at the bottom. 


AMRA Call to Action!

Senate Bill 1222 details

SB1222, provides needed relief to this vague language.
Here's the bill, it is now up to you to tell your Senator and County they need to support it.
SB1222 A California bill to clarify language for small miners
Copy and paste this into your email and send it to your representative today!
Dear Senator,
I support the passage of SB1222. The vague and adverse language put forth by SB637, the suction dredge bill of 2015, has caused other forms of low impact mining to become illegal. It has caused adverse economic impacts to rural communties within California and has adversely impacted thousands of small miners trying to supplement their incomes by using these low impact methods.
I srongly urge you to pass SB1222.

Yes, SB1222 is at least a baby step in the right direction.  The "Rural Cleansing" of California must be stopped.  SB1222 appears to recognize at least one of the unfair injustices that have, in effect, pushed rural communities closer and closer to extinction.
