Stop the 'No More National Parks' Bill

  • by: Kristi Arnold
  • target: Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner, Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor, Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy, Democratic Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer

The House is set to vote on the controversial "No More National Parks" Bill. The bill would overturn a 108 year-old law that Presidents of both parties have used to protect iconic American places, including the Grand Canyon, the Statue of Liberty, and Arches National Park.

This bill is in response to President Obama’s decision last week to protect a stretch of California’s Coast near Point Arena as a new national monument and is a petty attempt by House Republicans to quash the monument, who see the move as an end-around of Congress by the President. Obama used the Antiquities Act of 1906 to establish the monument since Congress has stalled out on Protected Wilderness Zones since the Tea Party came to Congress.

A vote for this bill would mean a subtle endorsement for a de facto “No More National Parks” policy in the U.S. House of Representatives. Congress finally made a snail's pace move toward progress last week with the passage of a bill to protect wilderness lands in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. Let's not go back in the wrong direction.

Tell Congress to vote "No" on the bill that would stop the creation of new National Parks!
