BRC NATIONAL ACTION ALERT
IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUESTED
SUPPORT FOR IMPORTANT LEGISLATION NEEDED!

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
The National Monument Designation Transparency and Accountability Act have been introduced in the House and the Senate. This legislation would bring needed reforms and end the abuse of the Antiquities Act. It will ensure public involvement and Congressional oversight over any future Presidential National Monument designation.
Given the past abuses of the Antiquities Act, we believe this legislation is necessary. And given the extensive plans the Obama Administration has already made for future Monuments, it is absolutely vital that the National Monument Designation Transparency and Accountability Act moves in the House and Senate committees this year.
Please help us by adding your name to our petition in support of this bill.
SIGN THE PETITON HERE
Do it NOW. Please.
