CLCV and LCV Statement on Rep. Chu’s Bill to Protect California’s San Gabriel Mountains

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA – California League of Conservation Voters Chief Executive Officer Sarah Rose and League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski released this statement on the introduction of Representative Judy Chu’s bill to protect California’s San Gabriel Mountains, the San Gabriel National Recreation Area Act:

“The San Gabriel Mountains are a national treasure that deserve to be permanently protected. Congresswoman Chu has shown real leadership in working with local communities to preserve an important area that connects so many Californians to the outdoors while providing clean drinking water and boosting the economy. Washington should follow the lead of these local communities and act to protect this special place.”
