BlogText To everyone who wrote in, spoke up, spread
To everyone who wrote in, spoke up, spread the word and/or attended the Coastal Commission hearing in Morro Bay to support the Coastal Act, to demand a transparent and responsible Commission, to fight to protect California’s coast: '''Thank you.''' You brought your friends, families and neighbors, joining thousands of other Californians. Sadly, seven of the 12 Commissioners refused to listen. Now, with the disturbing and upsetting termination of Dr. Lester as Executive Director – a decision made behind closed doors – we charge ahead. The coast needs our support and stewardship more than ever. '''What can we do?''' * Inform yourself! Speaker Toni G. Atkins and Assemblymembers Mark Stone and Marc Levine today introduced AB 2002, which would require any person who communicates with Coastal Commission members regarding an administrative action of the commission, and who qualifies as a lobbyist, to comply with provisions of the Political Reform Act of 1974.
