Pala Band's anti-landfill measure taken off ballot

A group led by the Pala Band of Mission Indians plans to appeal a decision removing the tribe's anti-landfill referendum from the November ballot.

A judge said the language the San Diegans For Clean Drinking Water submitted was too confusing. Ballots and voter pamphlets were already printed up with the referendum.

The tribe contends the Gregory Canyon landfill will harm the environment and pollute the San n Luis Rey River. The proposed dump would be located near two sacred sites.
