    Please e-mail your Congressman today! We need your help in getting H.R. 2114, the National Monuments Fairness Act passed in the House of
    Representatives. The vote is scheduled for
    Wednesday, June 19, 2002, so please send your letter today!

    To send our prepared letter, go to:

    H.R. 2114 the bill amends the Antiquities Act to give some structure and process to the currently existing unilateral executive declaration. It
    also requires congressional approval for new national monuments and additions over 50,000 acres within 2 years of a declaration.

    Green opponents are lobbying heavily against this
    bill. They say there should be no limits on a president?s ability to declare a national
    monument. They were really tickled that Clinton
    declared 18 monuments totaling over 5.6 million acres and would hope to do more if they get a chance in the future! They are deliberately overlooking the reasonableness of H.R. 2114, which the sample letter emphasizes!
