SCR 80, Killea. Coastal Awareness Year.
This measure would declare 1990 to be “Coastal Awareness Year.”
The measure would also encourage participation in activities sponsored by California’s official tall ship, the Californian, and other activities designed to promote a healthy and productive coastal environment.

WHEREAS, California has a varied coastline of sandy beaches, rocky shores, productive estuaries, marshes, rivers, tidal flats, urban areas, and harbors stretching over 1,000 miles from Mexico to the Oregon border; and
WHEREAS, The natural resources of the coastal zone are among California’s most important environmental and economic resources; and
WHEREAS, The marine environment is one of our most valuable resources for recreation, tourism, fishing, and other coastal industries; and
WHEREAS, The Legislature of the State of California is strongly committed to the wise management of the coastline to ensure that the environmental and economic value of the coastal zone will be sustained; and
WHEREAS, It is vital that the citizens of California understand the ocean’s vital influence on our quality of life and realize the level of this quality is within human control; and
WHEREAS, The State of California’s official tall ship, the Californian, which is owned and operated by the nonprofit Nautical Heritage Society, will be embarking upon its inaugural Coast-Link ’90 program in 1990, acting as the unifying link between citizens, communities, local, state, and federal agencies, environmental groups, and the marine industry, to promote coastal awareness; and
WHEREAS, The Californian will be calling upon 24 ports throughout the state, including Sacramento, Eureka, Fort Ross, Rio Vista, Benicia, Martinez, Vallejo, Sausalito, San Francisco, Oakland, Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Morro Bay, Port San Luis, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Newport Beach, Avalon, Dana Point, San Diego, and Chula Vista; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate of the State of California, the Assembly thereof concurring, That the Legislature of the State of California declares that the year 1990 be proclaimed as “Coastal Awareness Year,” in California; and be it further
Resolved, That individual citizens, businesses, groups, and public institutions are encouraged to observe this event, and to participate in activities sponsored by the Californian, and other appropriate activities designed to promote a healthy and productive coastal environment for the benefit of the people of California and the Nation.
