Letter to Obama - Protect Antiquities Act


On behalf of the following organizations and the millions of Americans that comprise our members nationwide, we write in support of the Antiquities Act. This law is a critical tool for the conservation and preservation of our nation's public lands and as such we encourage you to oppose any legislation to reduce your authority under the Antiquities Act and to appropriately utilize this tool to continue the long bipartisan practice of Presidents recognizing and protecting our rich natural and cultural heritage. With the exception of the Organic Act of 1916, no law has had more influence over the development of the modern National Park System than the Antiquities Act.
