The Hillside Federation took a position to ban the use of rodenticides (rat poison) in the City of Los Angeles in February, 2014. Assemblymember Richard Bloom’s bill, AB 1687, would ban rodenticides in the state. Please call or email Assemblymember Quirk and your own assemblymember and urge their support of AB 1687. See details below.
We are working with our northern California ally, Raptors are the Solution, on new California legislation to restrict the rat poisons that are killing our wildlife.
Bottom line: We need people to make a call to Assemblymember Bill Quirk, (916) 319-3965, as soon as possible. Assemblymember Quirk is the Chair of the “ESTM” committee that first considers our bill, and it is not getting high enough priority with limited time left.
The message is simple – Please do something about the poisoning of our wildlife by rat poison. For the purposes of this phone call, all that is needed is to express your concern and to request that Assemblymember Richard Bloom’s bill, AB 1687, be supported.
