This week, I was proud to have been recognized by Heal the Bay with the Dorothy Green award for my dedication towards water quality protection.
Heal the Bay is an environmental nonprofit established in 1985. They are dedicated to making the coastal waters and watersheds in Los Angeles safe, healthy, and clean.
Last year I was proud to author, Assembly Bill 1832, the California Seabed Mining Prevention Act, which aimed to protect our seafloors statewide from mining of hard materials. The Act proactively safeguards our unique and diverse coastal ecosystem and it’s deep-sea marine life from harmful activity.
As Chair of Natural Resources, I remain committed to advocating for our environment for future generations.
Thank you, Heal the Bay, for this recognition and your positive contributions to preserving our coastlines.
