ACTION ALERT: Stop the Obama land grab
URGENT ACTION ALERT!
Will you hold Barack Obama accountable for his latest multi-million acre land grab scheme?
On Mar. 11, WTP Director of Grassroots Coalitions Tim Ravndal filed a formal Freedom of Information Act request with the Obama administration seeking documents relating to a plan uncovered by Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) in which the administration would issue a torrent of “national monuments” designations for millions of acres of the West.
The partial documents were published by The New York Times and uncover a radical plan for the federal governemnt to lock up vast portions of the West using a 1906 law intended to protect small, individual prehistoric Indian sites from looters.
The idea is to begin the shut-down of the timber and energy industries by cutting off the domestic supply of timber and minerals.
National monument designations do not require the approval of Congress, do not require the designated land to actually be worthy of national monument designation and are a favorite tool of radical environmentalists to place valuable natural resources off-limits.
Congressman Doc Hastings (R-WA) has introduced H.R. 1254, which would require the Obama administration to release all documents relating to its strategy of using “national monument” designation to place millions of acres of the West off-limits to humans.
The House Natural Resources Committee will vote on HR 1254 in its meeting Wednesday, May 5th. The Democrat leadership is strong-arming members to kill it.
Can I count on you to do two things?
1) Call your member of the House at 202-224-3121 and tell him or her to cosponsor Doc Hastings’ House Resolution 1254. Tell them it simply asks the Obama administration to be up-front and transparent about what it is planning.
2) Call the Members of the Natural Resources Committee (http://resourcescommittee.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=96&Itemid=27) and tell them to vote YES on House Resolution 1254 when it comes up for a vote during markup Apr. 28.
I need you to contact these four members in particular. Just click on their names to e-mail them.
Tell them to support Doc Hasting’s H.R. 1254 when it comes up for a vote. The administration should be up front and transparent about what it’s planning.
Thank you for helping WTP fight radical environmentalist extremism. Together we can hold the Obama administration responsible for planning such a radical land grab.
