     We back our political endorsements with campaign
expertise by        assisting, candidates with the media,
fundraising and grassroots organizing strategies they need
to win their races. Each year we assign experienced cam-
paign organizers (known as the Grizzly Corps) to the very
closest environmental contests in the state. On Election
Day we comb the precincts getting environmental voters
to the polls for our candidates.
     League canvassers communicate directly with
hundreds of thousands of Californians every year. In addi-
tion to providing information on the environmental voting
records of legislators, they register voters, recruit volun-
teers, generate letters to targeted representatives and iden-
tify “conservation voters”.

   CORPORATE ACCOUNTABILITY
         Given the multitude of 1990 campaign pledges
    by candidates to “get tough on crime”, it is en-
    couraging to see that environmental criminals also
    received attention from the legislature. In 1990 a
    series of bills were introduced to hold corporations
    and industries more accountable to environmental
    laws and standards. The Governor signed a bill to
   penalize employees who knowingly allow criminal
    corporate behavior to continue. He also signed a
    bill requiring companies to comply with specific
    standards before using certain environmental terms
    in their advertising. Although the Governor would
    not enact legislation to establish a probation system
   for negligent corporations, the legislature appears
    committed to continuing the fight against environ-
    mental crime.
