Subject: [CAButte] CA LEGISLATIVE ALERT - SB 341 Public Cemetery District Law
Date: Tue, 25 Mar 2003 09:39:34 -0800
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
SB 341 is moving toward a hearing on April 2nd before the bill's author, the Senate Committee on Local Government. We need you to support our request that the Committee delete the proposed Section 9055 from this bill to prevent the sale or conveyance of our historic public cemeteries to private cemetery authorities.
I have placed a message on the El Dorado County Saving Graves website regarding this issue. Please see this message at: http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ca/county/eldorado/Sec_9055_public_cemetery_district_law__se.htm
For recommended text for your message, go to: http://www.usgennet.org/usa/ca/county/eldorado/Sec_9055_text_for_your_messag.htm. These can be emailed to the Committee's consultant, Peter Detwiler at .
We have a chance to ensure our public cemeteries remain public cemeteries. PLEASE HELP US PRESERVE OUR HISTORIC CALIFORNIA PUBLIC CEMETERIES IN PUBLIC OWNERSHIP! But you need to ACT NOW!
TO THOSE WHO ALREADY SENT EMAILS - The Committee's consultant sent a message to another opponent of the proposed Section 9055 stating the following:
"The Committee's format doesn't distinguish among shades of support or opposition. We list respondents as either "support" or "oppose." Everyone else who wrote to the Committee with a "qualified support" position will show up on the bill analysis in the "support" column. A few folks, like yourself, have asked us to move them to the "oppose" column and we'll do that."
If you have previously sent an email to the Committee under "Qualified SUPPORT", please send a message stating you OPPOSE SB 341. (You may use the recommended text link above.)
Anyone who has a question may contact me direct.
