SACRAMENTO — Santa Clarita Republican State Sen. Scott Wilk’s bill, Senate Bill 520, which would allow the public to weigh in before the CEMEX mega-mine can proceed, has passed out of the Senate Committee on Appropriations with unanimous bipartisan support. 

“The Senate Appropriations Committee recognized that the bill would have minimal and absorbable costs to the state, while providing an immense benefit for communities that will be impacted by proposed large mining operations,” Wilk said. “I look forward to presenting this bill to the full Senate next.”
