This local initiative will be voted on by many people that will not be affected by the dump. It’s important that Edwards Air Force Base and people in the Antelope Valley can participate and voice their concern before a dump in Cantil is decided,” said Assemblywoman Sharon Runner.
Assemblywoman Sharon Runner adds, “We do not need more garbage trucks going through our community, we have enough. This legislation will allow us to weigh in on this decision rather than having it forced upon us.”
Senator Runner is Vice Chair of the Senate Environmental Quality Committee and last week the bill was presented in the committee and passed with a 7-0 vote.
The legislation will be heard on the Senate Floor next week.
