SB 44 Passes! Oil to be Cleaned up!


SB 44 HAS PASSED!
THE OIL WILL BE CLEANED UP!
WE COULDN'T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU, OUR WONDERFUL SUPPORTERS!
Governor Jerry Brown has responded to the amazing outpouring of support from residents of Summerland, Santa Barbara, and across California as well as an army of Heal the Ocean supporters in favor of SB44 (Jackson) by signing the bill into law!

This legislation will provide $2 million per year to cap leaking oil wells off the coast of California for the next 7 years, starting in 2018. Heal the Ocean "dogged" this legislation through every single House and Senate committee, calling for HTO members to write letters and cards every single step of the way. You all came through!

We are told that the aerial survey commissioned by HTO and completed byAqueos Subsea and Planck Aerosystems just in time for a critical vote, had much to do with SB44 getting to the Governor's desk. The aerial survey pinpointed definite oil-capping targets, and took away doubt and guessing. The Planck Aerosystems aerial survey will now be followed by a dive survey by Aqueos Subsea - all of this possible because of generous funding from Manitou Fund, Minnesota, the family foundation of Summerland resident Nora McNeely Hurley.
