SB 838 Alert

SB 838 imposes “a moratorium on any mining using any sort of motorized equipment to extract gold, silver or any other precious mineral from placer deposits of the beds of the waters of this state.” It appears that SB 838 will be rushed through to avoid the outrage and protest that SB 115 produced.

Here is a link to the bill.
