Mr. Lieu’s Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area Boundary Adjustment Act (H.R. 4871) authorizes a 3-year study on the feasibility of expanding the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (or creating a new National Recreation Area) to include all of the beaches of the Santa Monica Bay as well as the Ballona Wetlands, Ballona Creek, Baldwin Hills and San Pedro coastline. Such an expansion would establish the first ever National Park Service presence in South Los Angeles.
