Provide greater protection for Native American sacred sites & preserve the Santa Margarita River

This petition had 810 supporters


AB 742, sponsored by California State Assemblymember Ms. Bonnie Lowenthal, is an important measure that would provide greater protection for Native American sacred sites by adding aggregate operations to the list of mining activities prohibited near such sites. This legislation has become necessary in light of events that threaten the creation place of the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians. The legislation will also help protect the Santa Margarita River and Quality of Life of residents in the communities of Temecula, Murrieta, Fallbrook and Rainbow, as well as protecting the 4,500 acre Santa Margarita Ecological Preserve of San Diego State University, immediately adjacent to the proposed quarry. It is important to note that this legislation WILL NOT affect mining anywhere else in the State.
