Governor Brown has signed SB 1201 LA River Expanded Public Access Bill!

Many thanks to State Senator Kevin de Leon for introducing SB 1201 on February 22, 2012.   The bill was signed by Governor Brown on August 28, 2012 .  The bill will take effect January 1, 2013.  Thanks to ALL the river friends who sent letters and phone calls in support.

“The passage of SB 1201”, says FoLAR President Lewis MacAdams, “fundamentally establishes that in the eyes of the State of California, the Los Angeles River is a river,  not just a flood control channel; and must be treated that way by Los Angeles County.”

“The people of Los Angeles will begin fulfilling the long-held dream of having access to a natural oasis in the middle of our city, ” says State Senator Kevin de Leon.
