Tell Gov. Newsom: Sign SB 1 Now!

UPDATE: We are very disappointed to hear that Governor Newsom vetoed SB 1, despite overwhelming support from California’s legislative bodies, environmental organizations, and our community. We look to California for leadership to protect our watershed in order to achieve a sustainable water future for the state, and this bill would have served as an “insurance policy” against attacks on environmental protections from the Trump Administration. Thank you to the 2,500+ members who took action to have the voice of the Yuba River heard in Sacramento. SYRCL will continue to advocate through our Yuba Salmon Now campaign and as your local Waterkeeper to make sure the Newsom administration protects the Yuba River watershed.

California Governor Newsom is threatening to veto a crucial water bill. It could happen any day. Take action now. Sign our letter to the Governor
