GREAT news on AB 52!
Fantastic news to share:
AB 52 Update now --
1) Includes federally recognized and non-recognized Tribes on the Native American Heritage Commission contact list in the definition of "California Native American Tribe," and
2) Makes lead agency consultation mandatory with both federally recognized and unrecognized Tribes under CEQA.
Thanks to ALL for organizing your Nations and communities, writing letters, calling in, meeting with your representatives in person, petition signing, your prayers, and all the other ways you helped bring about these important changes.
