Sierra License Plate Legislation Introduced

January 11, 2005 — The Sierra Fund has partnered again with Assemblymen Tim Leslie (R-Tahoe City) and John Laird (D-Santa Cruz), this time as sponsors of legislation creating a Sierra Nevada License Plate that will provide funds for the Sierra Nevada Conservancy.

The Sierra Nevada License Plate legislation, known as Assembly Bill 84, is a bipartisan effort that will direct the California Department of Transportation to create a designed Sierra Nevada License Plate, similar to the Tahoe and Coastal License Plates.

The Sierra License Plate will create an annual revenue stream of at least $1 million for the operations and management of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy.

The Sierra Fund also partnered in 2004 with legislative authors Leslie and Laird on Assembly 2600 which created the 25 million acre Sierra Nevada Conservancy.
