California Congressman Wally Herger
House votes to strengthen second amendment rights, US Congressman Wally Herger 11/18/11
Monument legislation discussed at hearing, testimony by U.S. Congressman Wally Herger 11/15/11. "Obama Administration intends to use this authority to lock up more than thirteen million acres of federal land from multiple-use access. In a time of high unemployment, this would lock even more American jobs away."
9/15/11 - U.S. Congressman Wally Herger testimony: Monument Legislation Discussed at Hearing: "In the Northern California Congressional District I represent, the federal government owns a significant amount of the land, with it reaching as high as 75% in one county. Local communities collect no taxes from these lands, money that could go to schools and roads. The federal government is also unable to manage it properly. Now the Obama Administration is talking about increasing the number of presidentially-designated national monuments...."
No Monument rally with Congressman Herger, Yreka 2/25/11
U.S Congressman Wally Herger: Department of Interior’s “Christmas Present” to the American Public: Lockup More Federal Land, posted to KBC 1/7/11. "...as the Obama Administration continues to claim that it has no plans to designate national monuments in response to a leaked memo describing potential monument sites (including two within our Northern California Congressional District), this latest action further undermines their credibility. Instead, these statements simply reinforce the Administration’s “lock it up” agenda with respect to multiple-use of federal lands."
