The Wild Horse Conspiracy

California Assembly Joint Resolutions

California Assembly Joint Resolution calls for:

* a halt to the wild horse and burro roundups in California,

* a restoration of the wild horse and burro herds at truly viable populations, and

* the implementation of Reserve Design as the true intent of the
Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act in order to establish
long-term genetically viable, ecologically well adapted, and
naturally self-stabilizing populations.

Please write in to your state assemblymen with copies to senators & governor if possible
in order to support this very important resolution.

2. California Dept of Fish and Wildlife Ombudsperson – OPPOSE

This bill would establish an ombudsperson for the Department of Fish and Wildlife. The bill would require the ombudsperson to work independently as an intermediary to provide individuals with a confidential process to address complaints and disputes with department. Complaints and disputes would be exempt from public disclosure, including, but not limited to, disclosure pursuant to the California Public Records Act.

Talking points:
By creating this ombudsperson, issues will be hidden from the public in the confidential process
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is funded primarily by our tax dollars through the CA general budget
The government is for the People. The People deserve transparency.
Already, the public is at a disadvantage with the CDFW, and though people can express concerns, still decisions are made by the agency that are not to the benefit of animals
By making the complaint process “confidential,” all of those issues will be withdrawn from public view, therefore handicapping the ability for the public to speak, and potentially causing harm to animals before anyone has a chance to know
(any points you think of, between mine & yours)
