Action Alert: Call Wesley Chesbro in Support of MLPA Delay/Sign Tribal
Rights Petition!


If you haven't done so already, I strongly urge you to call Assemblymember
Wesley Chesbro's office TODAY to show support for his request for a
six-month delay in the implementation of Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's
Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) Imitative on the North Coast. Chesbro
recently asked Resources Secretary Lester Snow for the delay to ensure that
environmental protection is balanced with traditional access rights. All you
need to do is give your name and city and say that you support the six-month


Supporters of the Governor's fast-track MLPA process are trying to pressure
Chesbro to back down on his request, so we need to show Chesbro that there
is overwhelming support for his request.


The letters and phone calls from fishermen and their allies really helped
make the difference in pressuring the Legislature to not confirm Don
Benninghoven, a Schwarzenegger appointee, as a Fish and Game Commissioner.
We can have the same impact here if EVERYBODY who reads this alert calls
Chesbro's office today!
