Washington—The House Committee on Natural Resources today voted to advance the first bill introduced by Congressman Jared Huffman (D-San Rafael) as a U.S. Congressman, the California Coastal National Monument Expansion Act of 2013 (H.R. 1411). The next step for Huffman’s bill is a vote on the House floor. Huffman’s bill expands the California Coastal National Monument by 1,255 acres through the addition of Mendocino’s Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands.

 

“I’m very pleased that the House Natural Resources Committee voted to advance my very first bill as a U.S. Congressman,” Congressman Huffman said. “Today, we’re one step closer towards protecting this jewel of California’s North Coast, and I hope to have a vote on the House floor soon.”
