LA County Supports Cemex Legislation
McKeon legislation supported by Los Angeles County...
The Los Angeles Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a motion by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich to support federal legislation that would exchange the Santa Clarita Valley CEMEX mine site with federal land near the City of Victorville.
“Congressman Buck McKeon’s legislation, House Resolution 5887, would eliminate the added congestion the mine would have caused with diesel-belching 18-wheelers on the already overcrowded Highway 14 and Interstate 5 freeways,” said Antonovich.
Antonovich’s motion directed that a five-signature letter to be sent by the Board of Supervisors to Congressman Howard "Buck" McKeon, the Southern California Congressional Delegation, members of the House and Senate Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources, and the Santa Clarita and Victorville City Councils indicating the Board's support of H.R. 5887.
