Legislation Would Limit President's Power to Designate National Monuments

 

Legislation (HR 900 and S 228) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate to curtail the President’s power to unilaterally designate National Monuments.  Roads and trails for motorized vehicles are frequently closed as a result of such designations. The bills would require such designations be approved by Congress and the impacted state legislature. 

Please contact your U.S. Representative and Senators (contact information below) Immediately to Request Support for HR 900 and S 228

  • HR 900 and S 228 would combat the President’s ability to designate National Monuments without input from the local community or state representatives.
     
  • HR 900 and S 228 would require that National Monuments be approved by the U.S. Congress and the impacted state legislature
     
  • HR 900 and S 228 would ensure greater public involvement in land use decisions and a more collaborative approach by local citizens, elected leaders and other stakeholders.
