Subject: [CASantaBarbara] SUPPORT CA Legislation - AB 207 related to cemetery vandalism
Date: Wed, 26 Mar 2003 07:45:57 -0800
Dear Cemetery Friends,
Good News! Assemblymember Bill Maze (34th Assembly District, serving Visalia, Tulare, Porterville, Barstow, Lindsay, Exeter, Farmersville, California City, Independence, Lone Pine) has introduced AB 207 to amend Penal Code Section 594.35 to include additional protection and punishment for vandalism of military veteran's grave markers and monuments. His idea for this legislation seems to have come about after heavy vandalism occurred at the Exeter Cemetery in his district.
We commend Assemblymember Maze for this legislation and would ask that you send emails to him in SUPPORT of AB 207.
Please send your emails under the Subject "AB 207 - SUPPORT" to Assemblymember Maze at: . Be sure to include your name and mailing address.
