Kehoe’s La Jolla seals bill passes assembly

Sen. Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) announced that her legislation giving the City of San Diego final say about seals at the La Jolla Children’s Pool passed the Assembly Thursday by a vote of 71-0.

“If this bill is signed into law it will return local control to the City of San Diego and with it the right to decide what uses are permissible at the Children’s Pool,” said Kehoe.

The legislation, SB 428, would amend the Children’s Pool trust so that it may be used as a marine sanctuary, with the San Diego City Council ultimately deciding whether to allow seals on the Children’s Pool beach. To view the text of the bill, click
