Please join 24th District Congressman Salud Carbajal for a town hall meeting Wednesday, February 22nd from 6-7:30pm in Arroyo Grande at the Lucia Mar Unified School District Building, 602-G Orchard Street, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420.
“Last month, on the anniversary of the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill, I announced the introduction of my first piece of legislation in Congress, the California Clean Coast Act. This legislation would permanently ban future offshore oil and gas leasing in areas of the Outer Continental Shelf off the coast of California.
In California, our coastal communities, local economies, and fragile ocean ecosystems cannot afford another disastrous oil spill. That is why it is critical that we pass this legislation to protect our coastal environment from further oil drilling and preserve its beauty and vibrancy for future generations.”
