THIS ACTION IS CLOSED.
Californians – We need your help getting an important bill, AB 1788, the California Ecosystems Protection Act, over the next hurdle – the Water, Parks, and Wildlife Committee. Last week, the bill passed its first committee, but your voice is needed to make this bill law.
Make a brief phone call today asking them to support AB 1788 and protect wild animals like bobcats, bald eagles, and the endangered Pacific fisher.
Please help make AB 1788 law with a simple phone call to your State Assemblymember, asking him or her to vote “yes” on AB 1788 and protect wild animals like bobcats, bald eagles, and the endangered Pacific fisher.
Sample Message: I am your constituent, and I care about protecting California’s wildlife. Please vote YES on AB 1788, the California Ecosystems Protection Act.
If your assemblymember does not sit on the committee, please call the committee chair, Asm. Eduardo Garcia.
If you’re not sure who your assemblymember is, find your representatives here.
