Assemblymember Julia Brownley is working to get tax dollars returned to California. For every tax dollar Californians send to Washington, D.C. they receive back only 79¢. “This is unacceptable,” Brownley said. “California has enormous unmet needs, and it’s time to end the picking of our taxpayers’ pockets.

“I have also scheduled time,” said Brownley, ”to speak directly with Senators Boxer and Feinstein and with Congressman Waxman about the help that I’ll need from all of them to influence critical and imminent decisions by the U.S. EPA impacting the 41st AD. This means having the Rocketdyne/Santa Susana Field Lab radioactive contamination at the former Dept. of Energy building on the site cleaned up by EPA to the very highest standard of safety, to get their support for listing cleanup of the toxic slag heap on the former Halaco Industries property in South Oxnard as a Superfund project and to do whatever is in their power to deny Federal permits that would have to be approved in connection with the pending application to moor a high-risk massive floating LNG platform offshore from Malibu and South Oxnard.”
