OIA: Help Protect the Antiquities Act, Oppose H.R. 3990

Print Friendly and PDF

The House Natural Resources Committee has voted along party lines to pass Chairman Rob Bishop’s, “National Monument Creation and Protection Act,” referring it to the House. The legislation is an attack on the Antiquities Act and undermines the protection and enjoyment of our nation’s public lands and waters.

The legislation was hastily introduced this past Monday and was voted out of committee 48 hours later. This kind of “fast-tracking” is unusual and concerning.

Ask your representative to vote NO on H.R. 3990.

Please call your member of the House of Representatives and use these talking points asking them to oppose H.R. 3990, the “National Monument Creation and Protection Act.” You can also learn more about OIA’s position on the bill here.

– Please oppose H.R. 3990, the “National Monument Creation and Protection Act”
– We must protect the Antiquities Act and our right to protect and enjoy our nation’s public lands. This bill threatens America’s lands, waters, culturally and historically significant places, and wildlife habitats
– This bill is a direct threat to our public lands and the Antiquities Act, we ask you vote no on this legislation
