|Help Our Forests, Cut Your Own Christmas Tree|
One of the many things I love about the North State is our beautiful forests. During the holidays, our forests provide a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with your loved ones and chop down your own Christmas tree for the cost of about $10 / permit.
Participating in this opportunity has a dual purpose- providing your family with a fresh, healthy tree and thinning overly dense areas of the forest which helps with wildfire prevention, among other benefits. Each forest has a map highlighting the areas where tree cutting is permitted. Be sure to identify an acceptable area and obtain a permit before you go. Click here for more information on permits in your area.
|Share Your Ideas for 2022 Legislation|
This is the time of year I put my legislation package together. Most of the legislation I have previously run originated from ideas you shared with me and issues your communities face, which I’m very proud of. Thanks to your input, K-12 students in California will now receive excused absences for attending cultural ceremonies; Victims of sexual assault have more accessibility than ever to forensic exams; Farmers & ranchers throughout the state will be able to access their property to save their livestock & land in the event of a disaster. (Details on these and more here.)
If you have suggestions or thoughts on issues that need a legislative fix and would help your communities, please let me know by responding to this email. I look forward to hearing from you.
