Summary: The Mojave Desert sustains legally-protected wildlife and untold acres of public land. The Trump Administration has imperiled the desert and its surrounding ecosystem by unrolling environmental protections, including those related to a potential pipeline which would drain 16 millions tons of water from the desert each year, courtesy of Cadiz, Inc. SB307 would require a full, state level environmental review of the Cadiz Pipeline, overriding federal attempts to lower environmental safeguards. This bill passed and was signed into law.
