Jerry Brown signs bill to protect river banks

FresnoJuly 17, 2014 

Gov. Jerry Brown last week signed legislation allowing California peace officers to cite violators of San Joaquin River Conservancy regulations.

The Conservancy's boundaries include land on both sides of the San Joaquin River with approximately 4,000 acres in Fresno County and 1,900 acres in Madera County. The original regulations created by the state Legislature didn't include a way to penalize violators.
