Call Congress to SAVE TRESTLES!

Remember what I said yesterday about Susan Davis' amendment to the Defense Authorization bill that would require TCA to comply with state and federal laws in extending the 241 Toll Road? Well, the amendment will be coming up for a vote TODAY! Now we know that TCA's preferred route for the Foothill-South 241 Extension would rip through and destroy the last great stretch of coast in Southern California. We also know that the Foothill-South 241 Extension would do nothing to relieve traffic, and it would totally violate the law.

Basically, we know that this proposed toll road to Trestles is a total waste of our time and money... But do our representatives in Washington? We need to make sure that they know what we already know. Follow me after the flip to find out how you can convince House Armed Service Committee members to do what's best for ALL OF US in Southern California...

Contact these California Democrats to join Rep. Susan Davis (D-San Diego) in asking TCA to comply with the law and save Trestles for many years to come:

Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove)
DC Office: (202) 225-2965

And contact these California Republicans to tell them that there's nothing "conservative" in wasting any more tax dollars on a project that violates state and federal law, and that goes against the very principles of conserving our natural resources:

Don't delay! The future of Southern California's coastline depends on our action! : )
