Tell the Senate: Protect the Bay from a Disastrous Oil Spill

Jun 7, 2019

The threat of a destructive oil spill in the Bay is looming large. Oil companies are increasingly transporting heavy crude that’s virtually impossible to clean up once it sinks into a waterway.

That’s why Baykeeper is sponsoring new state legislation, Assembly Bill 936, to improve California’s response to a heavy crude oil spill. The bill passed the Assembly and is now under review in the Senate.

Please take action today by signing your name to the letter below to urge legislators to vote yes on AB 936. This is a critical chance to protect the Bay from dangerous oil spills, and we need your voice
