SB 867 — Sea level rise planning: database by Senator John Laird of Santa Cruz

Status

Senate Appropriations

Our Position

Support

The Planning for Sea Level Rise Database describes steps being taken throughout the state to prepare for, and adapt to, sea level rise. This legislation extends the database’s use until 2028. 

Position Statement

For our cherished state parks, modeling indicates that 5 feet of sea level rise and a 100-year storm would result in the inundation of 593 structures, 150 acres of parking lots, 93 campgrounds and day-use areas, and 65 miles of access roads. California State Parks Foundation supports this legislation because the database encourages the development of tools and collaboration to enhance climate resiliency so California state parks can adapt to the impacts of climate change and remain protected and preserved for all Californians. 

AB 2479 — Forest restoration and protection: wildfire prevention by Assemblymember Jim Wood of Santa Rosa

Status

Assembly Natural Resources Committee

Our Position

Support

This legislation requires all state agencies funding restoration efforts on natural and working lands to prioritize restoration projects with permanent measures to ensure they are sustainably managed. 

Position Statement

California is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to ecologically restore land, including our state parks through California’s landmark commitment to preserve 30% of land and water by 2030. California State Parks Foundation supports this legislation because long-term commitments are necessary to build climate resilient parks and communities so that California state parks can adapt to the impact of climate change and remain protected and preserved for all Californians.
