  •  Sierra Club just posted that National Monument (0+ / 0-)

    creation will be banned if "The Sportsmen's Heritage Act"  becomes law.

    If it were to become law, this act would:

    Open more than 109 million acres of wilderness areas to motor vehicle use.
    Effectively eliminate the president's ability to designate any new national monuments like the one that was just announced for California: Fort Ord.
    Potentially open our wilderness areas to oil and gas drilling, logging, and mining.

    The above link has a link to a petition to your Senators to block this Republican House pased bill. Just another way the Corporepublicans dishonor former Republican Presidents. See petition here.

    I'd tip you but they cut off my tip box.
