Support National Monument Designation Process Reform

11 posts in this topic

H.R. 3990 would amend the Antiquities Act of 1906 by reducing the size of future National Monument designations and creating a formal process for reductions of existing monuments. Please click the link to tell your congressman you support this legislation.

The Antiquities Act of 1906 is outdated. This bill will give more visibility and input to public land users before national monuments are created.

Whoa,   I am in total Disagreement with you on this one. If not for T. Roosevelt and Pinchot ( National Forest ), we would have a much reduced national heritage.  The Grand Canyon started as a National Monument.

It is not that I dont like National Monuments, I do not like the Gov abusing its power and closing land by designating it a National Monument without the public having a say.

Agree with Bum. Current wording in The Antiquities Act of 1906 allows the President solely to designate land as a national monument. He does not need ANY other government body, or basically anybody at all, to approve the designation.

This is not about doing away with national monuments. It is just to improve and modernize the process in which they are designated.

"This is not about doing away with national monuments. It is just to improve and modernize the process in which they are designated"

The Trump administration plans to announce that he will shrink the monument by between 77 and 92 percent, according to statements from the office of Senator Orrin Hatch, Republican of Utah. It would be the largest reduction of a national monument to date, and it comes as the administration pushes for fewer restrictions and more development on public lands."

     I'll drink to that,   Bagstr
