This weekend, families and communities around the country will join together in celebration of Earth Day. Every year, this day is a reminder that we need to spend the other 364 days of the year being even more environmentally conscientious and making an even greater effort to preserve our natural treasures. To mark this occasion, I have released a video explaining my legislation, the Gulf of the Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries Boundary Modification and Protection Act (H.R. 192).  

Watch the video below and share it with your friends.

My bill would permanently protect the entire Sonoma and southern Mendocino County coasts by expanding the existing sanctuaries and shielding the area from offshore oil and gas drilling. The video includes details about the bill, highlighting the widespread community support from local governments, environmental advocates, business groups, and fishing organizations.

The coast is essential to the natural beauty and economic vitality of California‚Äôs North Bay. During my remaining time in Congress, I have no greater priority than to pass this legislation and safeguard our rich and abundant waters.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
