Overview of California Bills to stop Trump’s agenda in your home state

Support these bills that fill gaps in federal protections we stand to lose!

SB 49: Preserve CA Bill – Adds citizen lawsuit provision and makes Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species protections enforceable under state law and would close gaps between existing Federal protections and current state law This is the most critical bill in CA and we need to pass 100%, Trumps supporters already targeting the Citizen Lawsuit provision that holds polluter accountable to the communities they operate in.

SB 50: Protects Federal lands in state from sale for resource extraction – stops Trump from drilling on our coast!

SB 51: Protects science from federal censorship & protects CA federal employees who whistleblow on Trump.
