Biologists identify pot gardens as salmon threat
GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Federal biologists say the marijuana industry in the Emerald Triangle of Northern California and southern Oregon is a key threat to salmon in danger of extinction.

The NOAA Fisheries Service announced Tuesday that it's issuing the final recovery plan for threatened coho salmon in the region.

It calls for getting a better handle on the amount of water pot growers illegally withdraw from creeks where young fish struggle to survive, and then minimizing it. Pot in the region is grown legally for medical purposes and illegally for the black market.

Other threats from the unregulated industry include clear-cutting forests to create pot plantations, building roads that send sediment into salmon streams, and spreading fertilizer and pesticides that poison the water.

The spotlight on marijuana grew out of a California study estimating how much water pot growers suck out of salmon streams.

Bill allows families to seek gun restraining order
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California would become the first state to allow family members to petition judges to take away relatives' guns under a bill that faces a Tuesday deadline for action.

Democratic Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner of Berkeley introduced AB2014 after a deadly rampage in May near the University of California, Santa Barbara that left six people dead and 13 injured from gunshots and stab wounds.

Supporters say the restraining order bill could help prevent future attacks like the one in Isla Vista, while opponents say it would erode gun rights.
Under the legislation, a court hearing would be set within 14 days for firearm owners to argue that they are not a danger to the public.

Tuesday is the deadline for Brown to sign or veto bills.

Treatment to be mandatory for young sex offenders
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Adolescents and teenagers convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious victim will face mandatory sexual-offender treatment in California.

Gov. Jerry Brown's office on Tuesday announced he had signed SB838.
Democratic Sen. Jim Beall of San Jose introduced the legislation after 15-year-old Audrie Pott committed suicide after a photo of her assault spread online. Three teenagers convicted of assaulting the Saratoga High School student received 30- to 45-day sentences.

Beall says "Audrie's Law" closes a loophole allowing lesser penalties for juveniles if a victim is unconscious or developmentally disabled. The bill also allows public access to court hearings in such cases.

Beall removed mandatory two-year sentences from SB838 civil liberties groups and youth advocates raised concerns.

Brown signs 2 gun bills, vetoes 3-D weapons bill
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Certain BB guns and pellet guns would have to come with bright markings as a way to distinguish them from real firearms under a bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown.

Brown announced Tuesday that he signed SB199, requiring coloring on guns that fire pellets or BBs that are 6 millimeters or 8 millimeters. It was approved by lawmakers in response to last year's fatal shooting of a 13-year-old Santa Rosa boy carrying a replica weapon.

He also approved AB1609, requiring that California residents buying guns out-of-state go through the same steps required for in-state purchases.

However, he vetoed SB808, which would have required makers of homemade weapons and weapons made using 3-D printers to undergo background checks.

Gov. signs bill on new pesticide rules for schools
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill creating more stringent guidelines for California schools in their use of pesticides.

Brown signed SB1405 on Monday, about a month after it unanimously passed both houses of the Legislature.

The bill's author Senator Mark DeSaulnier, a Democrat from Concord who has twice tried to get similar bills passed, says it will make sure that if pesticides must be used on campuses they'll be applied in the safest ways possible.

The bill requires that school sites report all pesticide use to the state. Current law only requires reporting from professional pesticide applicators.

It also requires anyone who uses pesticides on school sites to undergo annual training on safe usage and other methods of managing pests.

Rescue dog finds boy, 5, safe at bottom of ravine
NORTH BEND, Ore. (AP) — The Coos County, Oregon, sheriff's office says a search and rescue dog found a missing 5-year-old autistic boy unharmed but stuck in mud at the bottom of a ravine in a wooded area.

KCBY-TV reports hat the boy's family called the sheriff's office Sunday afternoon to say the child was last seen walking into woods. Deputies joined the Coast Guard, Coos County Search And Rescue and Hauser firefighters for a search.

The sheriff's office says the dog found the boy after about an hour. He was returned to his family.

California exhausts initial firefighting budget
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California has exhausted its initial firefighting budget just three months into its fiscal year, forcing Gov. Jerry Brown's administration to shift $70 million from a reserve fund as the state enters what is traditionally the worst of its fire season.

The Department of Finance notified legislative budget writers Monday that the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection has spent the $209 million budgeted this fiscal year for emergency wildfire suppression.

The administration is transferring additional money from its $449 million special fund for economic uncertainties.

Keely Bosler, the finance department's chief deputy director, says the move is necessary as California battles "one of its worst fire seasons in recent memory."

CalFire spokesman Daniel Berlant says the first of Southern California's dry Santa Ana winds are expected later this week.
