Today, Governor Schwarzenegger signed SB375. This bill is an anti-sprawl bill that dovetails into AB32, the state’s landmark climate protection legislation encouraging communities to build smarter and decrease sprawl.
The Governor finally signed SB1093 yesterday, the Water Emergency Transportation Authority bill. SB1093 was a clean up bill that rectifies many of the problems with the original ridiculous bill that was secretly rushed through the State Senate in four days.

As mentioned two weeks ago, Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda will hold its first meeting tonight at the O-Club (6:30 – 8:30).
This will be a community lead group, so show up, jump in and roll up your sleeves.
See you there.
