6. FEDERAL LEGISLATION: H.R. 1557

United States Representative Steve Knight (R-CA-25) has introduced H.R. 1557, the Soledad Canyon Consistency Act.  The bi-partisan measure is co-sponsored by Representative Brad Sherman (D-CA-30), Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA-28), and Representative Judy Chu (D-CA-27).  Subject to valid existing rights, the bill seeks to withdraw from mineral entry the lands that were the subject of the two cancelled mining contracts (CA-20139 and CA-22901) between the Bureau of Land Management and CEMEX.  Enactment of the legislation will prohibit the Secretary of the Interior from entering into new contracts, leases or other conveyance for purposes of mining at the site in Soledad Canyon, which was the subject of the two contracts.  It is recommended that the City Council support H.R. 1557.

9. SAN GABRIEL MOUNTAINS NATIONAL MONUMENT REVIEW AND PUBLIC COMMENT
