California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's overview of his position about protecting California's marine resources.

Find green business solutions
california precipitation landscape and solar solutions I recently wrote to our governor asking that he take necessary steps to protect our coast and marine resources from impending development that has been judged harmful to both water quality and wildlife quality. This is his reply about what is currently being done to protect California's marine resources. I encourage you to voice your concerns to the Governor and your representatives. Thank you for your email regarding the protection of California's coast. I am passionate about protecting our state's natural resources. California has long been a leader in protecting our ocean, leading the nation in efforts to make sure that all of our oceans are clean, safe and bountiful.

As Governor, I have strongly opposed any new oil and gas leasing off California's coast. I also stand against any efforts to weaken the right of California, or any other state, to protect its coastline from the adverse impacts of offshore oil and gas drilling. I expressed my opposition in an April 11, 2006, letter to Acting Secretary of the Interior Lynn Scarlett asking that the proposed five-year plan continue the current Outer Continental Shelf moratorium preventing any new offshore drilling.

I have worked hard for a protection plan that will set a national standard for the management of ocean and coastal resources. Through this plan, four primary goals are created: Increase the abundance and diversity of California's oceans, bays, estuaries and coastal wetlands; make water in these bodies cleaner; provide a marine and estuarine environment that Californians can enjoy safely and productively; and support ocean-dependent economic activities.

Through this plan, I have signed into law the California Ocean Policy Act (SB 1319) establishing a California Ocean Protection Council that will guide ocean policy and coastal protection. To fund the Council's immediate action, I have allocated $10 million for marine life and marine reserve management. I also directed the Resources Agency to create California's Marine Life Protection Act Blue Ribbon Task Force, which is supporting the full implementation of the California Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) that is being viewed as a national model.

Thank you for taking the time to write. California's ecosystem and beauty depend on residents like you who are invested in the future of this great state, its environment and its natural resources.

Arnold Schwarzenegger
