OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA – California League of Conservation Voters Chief Executive Officer Sarah Rose and League of Conservation Voters President Gene Karpinski released this statement on the introduction of Representative Judy Chu’s bill to protect California’s San Gabriel Mountains, the San Gabriel National Recreation Area Act:

“The San Gabriel Mountains are a national treasure that deserve to be permanently protected.
