Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) announced Wednesday he is re-introducing the Rim of the Valley Corridor Preservation Act.

As reported by Southern California News Group, the bill would add 191,000 acres to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area, and would connect urban and natural landmarks, as well as different socio-economic communities. Schiff’s co-author on the bill is Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), which may mean a better chance of the legislation going through this time.

Schiff’s previous version of the act was introduced in 2016 with Sen. Barbara Boxer, but died soon after. Affected areas would include some parts of the Los Angeles River, the Arroyo Seco in western Pasadena and the San Rafael Hills.

Schiff speaks to Larry Mantle today to discuss the potential impact of the legislation.
