SB 5 passes the Senate! What’s still left to do.

Thank you!
SB 5 (park and water bond) has made it out of the Senate! On Tuesday the California Senate voted 31-9 in support of the bill, with a handful of Republicans supporting, sending a very strong and bi-partisan message to the Governor.

Thank you to everyone for all your help reaching out to legislators and partners in support of this bill! SB 5 will now be taken up in the Assembly, and AB 18 (SB 5’s sister bill) will be taken up in the Senate.

Below are sample tweets thanking legislators for their support of SB 5, which will translate into essential investments in parks and community health across the state – please tweet out and share with your networks!
