Imagine if President Teddy Roosevelt was blocked from safeguarding the incredible vistas of the Grand Canyon or the rich wildlife diversity of California’s Muir Woods. But a bill introduced in the Senate could do just that—unless we speak out now.
This measure would undermine current and future presidents’ attempts to designate national monuments by requiring Congress—as well as local governors and state legislatures—to approve any new designations. These incredibly high barriers would essentially leave our nation’s most important wildlife habitats and natural treasures vulnerable to development and drilling.
Tell your Senators you oppose these attacks on our national monuments! Our wild public lands need to be protected for wildlife and future generations.
