McCarty Introduces Legislation to Create Lower American River Conservancy
(Sacramento) – Standing near the edge of the American River Assemblymember Kevin McCarty (D-Sacramento) announced he has introduced legislation to establish the Lower American River Conservancy (LARC). Assemblymember McCarty says the legislation (Assembly Bill 1716) will make the river eligible for additional state resources. “The American River Parkway is vitally important to the people, economy and culture of the Sacramento region,” said Assemblymember McCarty. “By establishing this conservancy we will improve access to Sacramento’s most important natural resource and preserve the surrounding habitat for future generations.” Here’s more in this Assembly Access video.
