Amador Sups Discuss Sanctuary State And More!

Amador Sups Discuss Sanctuary State And More!

The Amador County Board of Supervisors held lengthy discussions on several items, including a bike route, sanctuary state law and wild and scenic designations. The Adventure Cycling Association requested the Board’s support of having part of the cross country route called USBR50 come through the county. The ACA wanted it to run through some county roadways, including the popular Shake Ridge/Fiddletown Rd route. After much discussion, including safety concerns and traffic impacts, the Board voted 4-1 to support an alternate route that uses mostly state highways. Supervisor Richard Forster voted no. The Board also voted to send a letter to the author of SB54, the so-called sanctuary state bill, registering their opposition as written and asking the author to include language that would allow local jurisdictions to inform immigrations officials if they have undocumented immigrants in custody on serious or felony crimes. And the Board voted 3-2 to oppose AB 975, which would change some of the current state Wild and Scenic law to closer match Federal law, including a ¼ mile corridor and wider definitions of criteria that qualify a river as wild and scenic. Supervisors Lynn Morgan and Frank Axe voted no.
