The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce's board of directors announced that it has taken positions on three statewide and federal issues.

n The board of directors unanimously voted to support H.R. 6156, which would set aside 470,000 acres of land in the Eastern Sierra and Northern San Gabriel area as a wild and scenic area. The bill was submitted by U.S. Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon, R-Santa Clarita.

n The directors voted to oppose Proposition 7, which is set to appear on the November ballot. The bill would require Southern California Edison to have 50 percent of their power produced through renewable energy sources by 2025.

n The Clean Fuels Program Reauthorization, known as SB 1646, received support from the chamber's board. The bill would reauthorize the South Coast Air Quality Management Districts' Clean Fuels Program.

It would remove the 2009 sunset on the district's authority to levy a $1 fee on motor vehicles registered within the district. The fee funds clean air technology research, development and demonstration programs in the region.
