Senator Doug LaMalfa on the State fire property tax, opps fee

Agriculture - California, CA Sen Doug LaMalfa, Fire Fees, State gov

Legislation Introduced to Repeal SRA Fire Tax

I am co-authoring legislation authored to repeal the State Responsibility Area (SRA) Fire Fee approved by the Board of Forestry and Fire Protection late last year. The manner in which this fee was implemented may not have been illegal, but it was certainly questionable.

Under Proposition 13, any new tax imposed by the Legislature must be approved by a two-thirds vote. Under Proposition 26, any fee that does not provide a direct service to the payer also requires a two-thirds vote. But this Legislature has found a loophole to get around that. Rather than the Legislature and the Governor legislatively imposing the tax or fee and obtaining the required two-thirds vote of support, in this case they simply pushed through legislation that requires another state department to impose the fee. Such was the manner in which the SRA fire fee was effected.

The statute created by AB X1 29 (a bill I opposed) required the Board of Forestry and Fire Protection (Board) to establish a fee of “up to $150” on inhabited structures within State Responsibility Areas. Given this mandate, the Board originally proposed a sliding fee scale that included a maximum $90 fee, with exemptions that could have reduced the fee to as little as $25 for some property owners.

Clearly dissatisfied with the modest approach of the Board, in October Governor Brown appointed four members to fill vacancies on the nine-member Board, and at a November hearing, the Board subsequently approved a $150 fee with a maximum $35 discount for properties in a fire district. The four newest members, together with two current members of the Board supported the new plan, while two voted in opposition, and one member abstained in protest. Under the Board’s action, those affected by the fee will pay no less than $115.

The Office of Administrative Law approved the regulations on January 23. Property owners will be billed $150 for fiscal year 2011-12 and $150 for fiscal year 2012-13 (not withstanding the $35 exemption). The projected $84 million collected will replace $55 million Cal Fire now gets from the General Fund and is marked for fire-prevention activities like brush clearing and education in the State Responsibility Areas. The balance will pay for administration and grants for fire prevention.

Largely rural communities should not be targeted for an additional fee (that is really a tax) under a state mandate approved by a simple majority vote and imposed by an unelected bureaucracy. For this reason, I am co-authoring Assembly Bill 1506, a bill being carried by Assembly Member Kevin Jeffries to repeal the fee. While I know that this will be an uphill battle, I also hope that Californians will make note of other attempts by this Legislature to grant broad fee- and tax-imposing authority to unelected boards and commissions. I doubt this will be the last time this strong-arm tactic will be employed.

Rebuttal to Congressman Wally Herger

Agenda 21 & Sustainable, CA Congress Wally Herger, Op-ed

Written Jan. 29, 2012

 Wally Herger is quite mistaken in his belief that the United Nations (UN) and their Agenda 21 is not happening in the USA, because he says, “A 21 is not legally binding and it would require submission to the U.S. Senate for ratification by the President. This has not occurred. Again, ‘Agenda21’ is not legally binding on the United States.” This is true, but never the less, Agenda 21 is being supported by Christopher Dodd, Joseph Lieberman, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, and many politicians in our Congress and even the President and most all of the other Presidents.

In 1992, at their Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, the United Nations and their accredited NGO-Stakeholders, especially the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, passed four “Treaties.” These “Treaties” all work together to change our Freedoms, the landscape, economy, society, culture and corrupt it by using the environment and Sustainable Development for the world, and it does not matter whether this was voted upon by our government (because our government is part of this consciousness), even though we do not have to do with these “Treaties” or the UN requirements, they are being put upon us by the NGO-Stakeholders.

All the following treaties have the same goal: to take private property, water, stop humans from destroying the earth and things that are natural, to depopulate by 90%, and to Create Sustainable Development Everywhere!

#1. “The Biodiversity Treaty,” that they already started in 1972 when the United Nations put their name on twenty of our National Parks as “World Heritage” sites with the help of the National Park Service, which is an NGO, and also created in America, forty Biosphere Reserves in 1978. This treaty is about one thousand pages long and names all the Unsustainable things that need to be gotten rid of, such as: Dams, logging, mining, roads, grazing, all domesticated animals, ranching and farming, CO2, (which the plants and trees need to thrive). They have listed several pages.

#2. Agenda 21, is 40 chapters of things that need to be made sustainable. Transition Towns using “Peak Oil and Climate Change” as their goal, have been established by NGO-Stakeholders to carry out this “Soft Treaty,” called, “Local Agenda 21.”

This is from an article by William Jasper: “The UN’s Agenda 21 is definitely comprehensive and global—breathtakingly so. Agenda 21 proposes a global regime that will monitor, oversee, and strictly regulate our planet’s oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, aquifers, sea beds coastlands, wetlands, forests, jungles, grasslands, farmland, deserts, tundra and mountains. It even has a whole section on regulating and ‘protecting’ the atmosphere. It envisions a global scheme for healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production and consumption—in short, everything; there is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21.”

#3. “The Wildlands Project,” this has been envisioned by all the Environmental clubs-groups, (or NGO-Stakeholders) forever. It removes 55% of our land for the flora, fauna, wetlands, rivers, streams which they consider as “PERSONS.” Why do you think Craig Tucker-NGO-Stakeholder wants our dams removed against our will? Why do you think Felice Pace-NGO-Stakeholder, wants logging and mining stopped? They want to make a Wilderness out of Siskiyou County by using the Endangered Species Act and the Environmental Protection Agency; Law Suits, Grants from our own Congress, and going to D.C. to speak to the Congress using their warm and fuzzy language. They always get what they want!

The UN now has the “Rights of Mother Earth;” a Constitution called, “The Constitution for the Federation of the Earth,” as well as many other covenants, treaties, regulations, laws which adversely effect our “Five Freedoms,” our whole way of life and of course our own Constitution!

#4.  “The NGO Alternative Treaty,” is 46 Chapters of giving the NGOs authority to get all of this done. It does not matter if these Treaties were not accepted by our government or by “We the People.”  These treaties have been put upon us with the help of our own government and NGO-Stakeholders, such as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, Global Exchange, Global Commons, Transition Towns and the plans for a “New World Order.” They have conned the mayors of many cities to join, by using warm and fuzzy words like: sustainable, clean, save for future generations, partner-ship, improvement, consideration of the environment and people, (even though they want to get rid of 5 billion of us). There are many more sayings they use to convince they are preserving our way of life. They talk out of both sides of their mouth.

In 1993, B. Clinton supported what the UN did in 1992, by Executive Order12852, created the Presidents Council for Sustainable Development  where the Department of Interior is instructed to fund this 25 member Council which: “shall coordinate with and report to such officials of the executive branch as the President or the Director of the White House Office on Environmental policy shall from time to time determine. The Council shall advise the President on matters involving sustainable development. ‘Sustainable Development’ is broadly defined as economic growth that will benefit present and future generations without affecting the resources or biological systems of the planet. The Council shall develop and recommend to the President a national sustainable development action strategy that will foster economic vitality. And the Chairperson or Chair persons may, from time to time, invite experts to submit information to the Council and may form subcommittees of the Council to review and report to the Council on the development of national and local sustainable development plans.”

Obama did the similar thing with his E. O. 13575 Sustainable Rural Counties. This is like E.O. 12852 in that it also has 25 members as well as has NGOs and the Presidents Cabinet for Sustainable Development. An article said: “Within the twenty-five designated members of the council are some curious ties to Agenda 21 and the structure being built to implement it, even George Soros in involved, as is our economy. Both of the E.O.’s are connected with Agenda 21. We voted just shy of 80% to save the dams and none of the Departments of Interior are  listening!

You see, this has been planned by the Power Elite, the ones who have millions and billions of dollars and have caused poverty by the impositions they have put upon us by the manipulation of our economy, by the control of our financial systems, of which is the Federal Reserve Board, they created, and all are associated with the UN’s International Monetary Fund, which we have now bailed out two times, the World Bank and the Bank of International Settlements.

All of this has been going on right in front of our eyes. Are we blind and deaf as well?!

Most Sincerely,

Nita Still

H.R. 1837 will end future man-made droughts — bring job and water supply certainty to CA.

Agriculture - California, CA. Congressman Tom McClintock, California water, San Joaquin River, WA Congressman Doc Hastings

Committee to Act on Plan to End California’s Man-Made Drought and Restore Water Supplies and Jobs
Natural Resources Committee Scheduled to Move this Week

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 14, 2012- House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Doc Hastings (R-WA) and California Representatives Devin Nunes, Kevin McCarthy, Tom McClintock and Jeff Denham today announced that comprehensive legislation, H.R. 1837, will be considered and amended in Committee to end future man-made droughts, bring job and water supply certainty to the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valleys in California and decrease reliance on foreign food sources.

The markup is scheduled for Thursday, February 16th at 10:00 AM.

The bill is a comprehensive solution that would restore water deliveries that have been cut-off due to federal regulations and environmental lawsuits, ensure a reliable water supply for people and fish, secure water rights, and save taxpayer money by ending unnecessary and dubious government projects.

The bill could protect up to 30,000 jobs, generate millions in expedited federal revenue, and save American taxpayers and ratepayers hundreds of millions of dollars. During Committee consideration, a comprehensive amendment to the bill will be introduced. The bill, as amended, will now secure northern California’s property rights and offer unprecedented protections for senior water rights holders.

“I’ve traveled to California and heard firsthand how the man-made drought severely impacted farming communities in the San Joaquin Valley. The Pelosi-led Congress sat idly by and did nothing, while we are delivering on a package now that delivers real relief to parts of northern and southern California. I applaud my California colleagues in finding a fair compromise on this important legislation,” said Chairman Doc Hastings (WA-04).

“I am pleased that after four years of inaction by Democratic super-majorities in Congress, we are now – under Republican leadership – able to move forward with this important legislation. We have crafted a good bill that not only restores the flow of water but will ultimately make unnecessary the construction of a $12 billion canal to bypass the Bay-Delta,” said Rep. Devin Nunes (CA-21).

“There are over 2 million unemployed Californians right now, yet the government continues to put a tiny, non-native fish above the job creation possibilities of flowing water. We need to get our priorities straight and put Californians first. That’s what this bill does, and I’m proud to stand on the side of California families and job creation,” said House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (CA-22).

“We have been striving for a resolution that fully protects Northern California water rights and I believe we have accomplished that with the revisions to this measure. The amendment will extend the full protection of federal law to all Northern California senior water rights holders, while assuring that surplus water is put to productive use creating jobs for Californians. California is a unique case of conflicting federal and state jurisdictions in the management of its water resources. This agreement, achieved through the active participation of water districts across Northern California, assures that their priority water rights will be forever secure and inviolable,” said Water and Power Subcommittee Chairman Tom McClintock (CA-04).

“For decades, there has been more talk than action in dealing with California’s water crisis. H.R. 1837 provides a plan for a reliable and sustainable water supply for families, farmers, and communities throughout California. Our great nation’s economy continues to struggle and record numbers of people remain unemployed, the best opportunity we have to put people back to work is utilizing our natural resources,” said Rep. Jeff Denham (CA-19).

Background:
In 2009, federal regulations to protect a 3-inch fish – the Delta smelt – led to the deliberate diversion of over 300 billion gallons of water away from San Joaquin Valley farmers. This cost thousands of farm workers their jobs, inflicted up to 40 percent unemployment in certain communities, and fallowed hundreds of thousands of acres of fertile farmland.

The Pelosi-led Congress did nothing to reverse the plight of the San Joaquin Valley and reportedly obstructed Republican actions to reverse the situation. H.R. 1837, as amended, reflects Republican promises to avoid another man-made drought.

The bill:

  • Restores water deliveries to communities by codifying the historic, bipartisan State/Federal agreement known as the “Bay-Delta Accord.”

  • Reforms punitive federal laws, the Central Valley Project Improvement Act and the San Joaquin River Restoration Settlement Act, in order to provide fairness to ratepayers, promote transparency and accountability, and save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.

  • Allows water users to pay off federal debt early.

  • Protects and secures private property and senior water rights.

Constitution presentation Feb. 18

Constitution, Defend Rural America

 Saturday, February 18,

5 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Scott Valley Grange

Quartz Valley Road, Greenview

Registration starts at 4 p.m.

Presentation

Kirk MacKenzie, founder of Defend Rural America, returns to offer ideas on how to win American back one county at a time, using the principles and protections provided to us by our Founding Fathers and Constitution. The problems we face as a nation are not new. Throughout history, would-be rulers schemed to subordinate all others to their dictate, by one means or another. Our Founding Fathers understood this, and the building blocks upon which totalitarianism is established and maintained. They decided America was to be different, and to be a guiding light by which others nations could follow. America would be a nation of Free People.  Government would be the servant, not the master. To guarantee this as best they could, the Founding Fathers wrote into the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights the principles and protections for preserving Liberty. Rural America can be saved by restoring and exercising these principles and protections.

Siskiyou County Panel

Following the presentation, there will be a panel discussion to expand upon the application of these concepts to the problems that face Siskiyou County. The panel members include: Anthony Intiso, Bill Gregory, Dr. John Menke, Leo Bergeron, Mark Baird, Ray Haupt, and Rex Cozallio. Following their opening remarks, the floor will be opened for questions & answers.
