L.A. court paves way for sludge Popular Measure E on hold for now; Kern may appeal ruling

Kern's voter-approved sludge ban stumbled in a Los Angeles federal courtroom Monday when a judge
overturned a year-old ballot measure meant to stop imports of Southern California's treated sewage
sludge to local farmland.

State Sen. Dean Florez, D-Shafter, said Tuesday he hopes the Kern County Board of Supervisors appeals a
judge’s recent overturning of Measure E. And he said he hopes to meet with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio
Villaraigosa to see if the issue can be settled without further court action.
