SR 100 passed with overwhelming support in the state Senate, and it encourages people of California to celebrate redwoods and support their conservation and restoration into the future. (The “100” in SR 100 is a total coincidence, but it’s fitting because we’re celebrating the League’s centennial this year!) The resolution was authored by Senator Mike McGuire (D-North Coast/North Bay) and co-authored by the following California State Senators:
- Benjamin Allen (D-Santa Monica)
- Bill Dodd (D-Napa)
- Steven M. Glazer (D-Orinda)
- Robert Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys)
- Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo)
- Hannah-Beth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara)
- Bill Monning (D-Carmel)
- Nancy Skinner (D-Berkeley)
- Henry I. Stern (D-Canoga Park)
- Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco)
In addition to Senate Resolution, the state Assembly adopted House Resolution (HR 96), which acknowledges and celebrates the League’s 100th birthday. HR 96 was authored by Assemblymember Mark Stone (D-Monterey Bay).
Save the Redwoods League is very grateful to Assemblymember Stone, Senator McGuire, and all co-author Members of the California State Senate for their support and partnership in protecting and celebrating California’s beautiful redwood forests! We’re honored and thrilled to mark our 100-year milestone and a century of protecting California’s state trees.
