    Bipartisan Call Urges Congressman Buck McKeon To Act On Cemex Mine

    A pair of candidates for the 25th Congressional District seat held by Congressman Buck McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, and a state assemblyman are calling on McKeon to stop an aggregate mine in Canyon Country by reviving a tact he tried in 2001. A letter sent by state Sen. Steve Knight, R-Antelope Valley, and Assemblyman Scott Wilk, R-Santa Clarita, urged McKeon “to submit an amendment to the Defense Authorization Bill that would declare State Highway 14 a ‘national defense asset’ that would ban the CEMEX mega-mine from moving forward,” the letter stated. In 2001, amendment language on the Highway 14 move was accepted, however it was pulled from the bill during conference committee, Wilk said.
