To Whom it May Concern;
I am writing to voice my opinion on the new laws regarding gold mining in California. I am an avid miner, I own 5 claims throughout Northern California. My number one concern has always
been the environment and have removed pounds of lead out of the streams, but today, the regulations have gone above reality and I feel this is just an attempt to destroy one of our God
given rights in this country. I do feel that the past laws were justified and they should just remain the same. I realize this letter is not long, but I feel I said all that is needed to be said. Thank you for listening.
