          • Off Highway Vehicle State Parks Funding


            from The Comadres Added 27 0 1

            This shows how Sacramento caters to the off-highway vehicle (OHV) industry lobby, keeping them rich and powerful while public health is threatened by off-road activities at the Oceano Dunes SVRA. This documentary contains the audio of a California legislature 2011 budget hearing that shows how our legislators try to prevent Governor Brown from sweeping some of money from the rich OHV parks into the General Fund to try to save the poor state parks. Due to a cozy OHV industry/lawmaker coup in the sixties, the OHV has been skimming 60 million a year from our California fuel tax into the OHV Trust Fund, making it rich while other state parks are poor. The fuel tax study that determined the amount was revisited, and found to be overestimated by 50%. But our legislators ignored the finding and continue to give OHV 5 million a month that would otherwise go to cities, counties, and for road maintenance. The OHV has its headquarters in Pismo Beach, next to the crown jewel of its SVRA's, the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area (ODSVRA). The air pollution from this SVRA is health threatening. According to a study done by the APCD (slocleanair.org) the vehicles stir up sand that contains carcinogenic silica. Yet our legislators in Sacramento, some with known conflicts of interest, cater to the OHV, at the expense of public health. See safebeachanddunes.org.

              • Cut This: The Death Penalty


                from aclunc Added 1,298 2 1

                At a time of fiscal crisis, when there are more needs than dollars, we're calling on Sacramento to cut the death penalty. We would save $1 billion in five years without releasing a single prisoner or jeopardizing public safety—$1 billion that could be spent on education and vital social services for Californians. We know that advocates and community members from across the state are fighting to ensure that the vital social services that make the safety net for California's most vulnerable populations aren't slashed. We're here with a small piece of the solution. Need to cut something? Cut this: the death penalty. For more information about WHY the death penalty costs more visit this link: http://bit.ly/9IYHcc.
