August 17, 2017 Press Release
SAN PEDRO, Calif.—Rep. Nanette Diaz Barragán (D-San Pedro) today issued this statement about the Rancho Liquefied Petroleum Gas facility located in close proximity to hundreds of San Pedro homes and the Port of LA: "Our community is home to one of the largest above-ground butane gas facilities in the nation. These types of facilities pose a danger to their neighborhoods when they’re located in urban areas."
"President Trump's recent executive order suppresses public comment on potentially harmful major projects, and his totally inadequate review process will put our environment even more at risk for the sake of corporate profits. As sea levels rise, and as floods and extreme storms become more common, it will become ever more necessary that we acknowledge and plan for those realities."
