    Hey guys. Just a quick note about the hearings to approve Bush's nomination for Sec of Interior (some lady, excuse me for not remembering her name).

    She was asked about Clinton's (ab)use of the Antiquities Act to make land into monuments and the push for Bush to review it (i.e., Bush Petition thread). She said she strongly opposes the way Clinton used the Act and that perhaps it should be changed to prevent that sort of thing from happenning again. She said she would support some kind of review of Clinton's actions. She also stated all actions about land management should start from the bottom up (state-->federal, instead of Clinton's idea of the other way around).

    Just some info for ya guys!!!

    Her name is Gail Norton, we need this lady in this office! to do this we need to send letters of support to Bush for her, we need to send letters to our senators letting them know that if they don't vote for her there will be a political price to pay, (ours in Oregon have already voted wrong on several issues so they know that it doesn't matter how they vote). the radical preservationalists will be playing a full court press on this one so we need to strike back with the same thing.

    Dan- I don't know about some of the others, but I suck at writing letters. Maybe you or some one else can start writing letters and posting them, so we can cut and paste it to another program and print it. As for addresses, where do you go to find where to send stuff?

    Blazen91, I suck at writing letters too, I just wing it, do my best, and make sure that I don't say the same things twice in two different ways.
    form letters don't work well with polititians, this is why I always write a new letter. just keep it short and to the point.

    In case anyone cares [​IMG] , I threw in this line to the text box of that letter. I thought it just personalized it enough.

    I particularly support her opinion regarding Bill Clinton's misuse of the Antiquities Act to restrict access to national land.

    Just thought I would offer it all the self-proclaimed non-writers out there [​IMG].
