$100 Million For L.A. River Restoration

(Sacramento) - Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood) is cheering the State Legislature’s approval of $100 million in Proposition 1 funding for restoration of the 51-mile L.A. River. “Study after study has shown communities with green space and community parks have significantly reduced health risks, including lower rates of cancer, asthma and obesity,” Speaker Rendon said. “I’ve advocated for restoring the L.A. River and fought for this funding so residents of the Southeast Los Angeles County can see an improvement in their quality of life.” The $100 million in funding will be split between the San Gabriel and Lower Los Angeles Rivers and Mountains Conservancy.
