State Senator McGuire is going after illegal forest clearing.
The following quote was published in the Eureka Times-Standard:

“…illegal conversions are polluting our pristine watersheds, threatening our drinking water supplies, killing wildlife and ushering in near irreversible harm to California’s beloved forests,” McGuire said in a statement. “SB 1453 will give Cal Fire investigators and prosecutors the time they need to successfully throw the book at these rogue growers who are destroying our forests and it provides authorities time to address these terrible acts.”
