[SDCPJ] Please Help! State Big Box Bill

 Brothers and Sisters,
 
Most of you are aware that after the San Diego City Council overrode the Mayor's veto to pass the Ordinance to Protect Small and Neighborhood Businesses (Wal-Mart/Big Box), Wal-Mart began collecting signatures and forced the city council to repeal the measure. The next day, Senator Juan Vargas introduced a similar bill (SB 469) that would make economic impact studies a requirement for big box development statewide.
 
We are now working to pass SB 469 and we need your help. It is key that we build grassroots support for this bill and begin pushing our state legislators to support it.
 
The first thing we need is for everyone to sign the petition to support the bill: http://act.aflcio.org/c/240/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=1482
 
Secondly, if you are on facebook, please "Like" the page to support the bill:
 
The bill will be heard in the first committee, Senate Government and Finance, on April 6.
