BRC NATIONWIDE ACTION ALERT
SECRET DOCUMENT REVEALS OBAMA CONSIDERING 13 MILLION ACRE LAND GRAB
ANTIQUITIES ACT ABUSES MUST END - ACTION ITEM BELOW
Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber
If you had a chance to stop the Clinton Administration from designating all those Monuments, would you take it?
The Obama Administration is well on its way to match former President Clinton's Monument designation spree. Thanks to a whistle-blower in the Department of the Interior, a secret Obama administration plan to grab 13 million acres of public and private lands across 11 western states has been exposed.
The secret document indicates the DOI is operating on the assumption that the Monuments will be designated, even so far as to budgeting funds for purchasing private land inholdings. That's why we need your help today.
BRC is requesting that Congress pass legislation that provides some sort of mechanism or process for Congressional review of Antiquities Act proclamations, and also for a method for State and local input before any designation takes place.
In the meantime, we need our members to immediately contact their congressional representatives and ask them to go on record as opposing any unilateral action by the administration.
Ric has put together another one of our INSANELY EASY 3 - Step Action Items, so it won't take more than 3 or 4 minutes out of your day.
Thank you in advance for your action.
PS: Check out "MORE INFO FROM THE WEB" at the bottom of the alert.
BRC NATIONWIDE ACTION ALERT
Many of these lands are home to world class motorized and non-motorized recreation destinations. The Antiquities Act allows the President to establish National Monuments that replace multiple use management with a preservationist directive.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
BRC'S THREE-STEP ACTION ITEM
NOTE: Please be polite and, if possible, make your comments as personal as you can.
STEP 1: Click on the following
link to go to BRC's Rapid Response Center.
STEP 2: When you call, use the
talking points below to help make your point.
I am asking you to go on record as opposing any unilateral monument designations by the Administration. Also, I want you to sponsor or co-sponsor legislation that requires Congressional review of Antiquities Act proclamations. This process should also allow for State and local government as well as public input before any designation takes place.
Given the economic crisis our nation is in today, this is not a good use of my taxes.
Thank you for allowing me to express my concern.
