Malibu Senator Favors Special Surfer Plates That Will Benefit MRCA Beach Access Plan
Written by 991KBU on June 29, 2020
Malibu’s State Senator has introduced a proposed law to require the DMV to sell special license plates … to commemorate surfing.
And proceeds from the special license plates will go to a fund that supports the M R C A … and its Malibu Coastal Access Public Works Plan.
That’s the effort by the M R C A – the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority … headed by Joe Edmiston …
He’s the man vilified in Malibu from shoving public access into places … then walking away from the crime and pollution that results from lack of rangers . garbage pickup … and lack of toilets.’
Residents have been coping with vandalism … fires .. trash and trespassing on sections of the Malibu coast that are not set up for visitors.
Henry Stern has introduced senate Bill 1027 … which would require the state to offer license plates commemorating “The Endless Summer.”
Proceeds from the specialized surfer license plate sales would go to a coastal conservancy awareness program.
That is the state Coastal Conservancy’s Explore the Coast Grant Program.
Stern’s bill says proceeds from the surfer license plates , upon appropriation by the Legislature to the State Coastal Conservancy, be used to fund a specified program within the conservancy’s Explore the Coast Grant Program.
Just what exactly that specified program exactly is … not clear in the bill.
But that grant program is the one funding the M R C A Malibu beach access program.
If Senator Stern’s bill passes … it apparently will funnel additional money to the M R C A coastal access project in Malibu … as well as projects up and down the state.
We have an email in to Stern’s office but have had no reply.
