LA City Council passes resolution in support of AB 1242

On October 9, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously passed a resolution endorsing AB 1242 the Human Right to Water Act of 2009. This video by one of the bill's co-sponsors, Urban Semillas, features supporting comments from two City Council members and representatives of some of the grassroots groups that are working toward passage.

The resolution was introduced by 1st District Councilmember Ed P. Reyes, who is also chair of the city's Planning and Land Use Management Committee and the LA River Ad Hoc.

Alliance for Democracy is one of the co-sponsors, with AfD co-chair Nancy Price working with a coalition of groups to pass this historic act. A thank you to all California members who responded to our action alerts. Californians--it's not too late to call or fax Governor Schwarzenegger in support of this bill--see our latest alert here.
