Your chance to shine and schmooze with Senator Tiffany and his cohorts(they are ‘redoing’ SB349, dressing it in segments in case they can fool us). Your voice is needed! Next Monday  AND  Tuesday! It’s about protecting our state from predation and the degradation of our lives, Tiffany’s committee in the forefront of the administration’s efforts to place legal barriers up to our traditional ability to protect our local rights. They expect us to be asleep on this. (it has worked for them historically!) Let’s prove them wrong!  We have to have energy and vision to protect future generations’ rights and to clean water, air, and nature’s bounty.

Please scroll down and read!  Thanks, Marcia
