The Victorville City Council once again considered whether or not to support or oppose Senator Feinstein's proposed California Desert Protection Act of 2010 (CDPA 2010). Once again--for the third time--the Council decided to delay taking a vote on the matter, citing the need for more information. Several citizens present at the meeting voiced support for the legislation, and one citizen from Victorville opposed the legislation.
Although ultimately whether or not a city council opposes or supports the bill will not directly impact the legislation, the measure of local support for the legislation will be used to indirectly bolster or erode the legislation's chances when it comes to a vote for committee debate in Washington. For that reason, if you support the legislation you should contact your local officials and let them know.
