“While the Gulf of Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries protect the coast of Marin, most of the Sonoma coast is still vulnerable to oil spills and land based pollution.  That’s why I introduced H.R. 223, the Gulf of the Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries Protection and Modification Act, legislation to permanently protect the entire Sonoma and southern Mendocino Coasts by expanding the existing sanctuaries.  Such an expansion will not only protect the incredible biodiversity found in this area, but the thousands of research, tourism, and commercial fishing jobs that depend on it.”
