Forest

Posted: Wednesday, September 26, 2012 6:15 am

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed AB 2284, legislation authored by Assemblymember Wes Chesbro, D-North Coast, that gives law enforcement new tools to protect forest lands from environmental damage and the public from danger resulting from illegal drug production.

The legislation allows local law enforcement to pull over and question drivers transporting agricultural irrigation supplies on unpaved or gravel roads through resource land and timber preserve zones, but only in counties where the board of supervisors has passed a resolution requesting this service. AB 2284 also adds additional civil penalties for violations of certain Fish and Game Codes in conjunction with illicit drug production on resource and timberlands.
