The American Sand Association released this call to action Friday:
White House Administration officials have accepted Senator Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) invitation to visit the California Desert and will attend a public meeting on Tuesday, October 13, and consider designating 1 million acres in the area as National Monuments. Senator Feinstein also has pending legislation that would not only address the area being considered for National Monument designation, but would also statutorily designate five OHV areas.
It is inappropriate for the Administration to even consider a National Monument designation in the area as Feinstein's collaboratively developed legislation is moving in the Senate (a legislative hearing is scheduled on the bill on October 8), and Representative Paul Cook (R-CA) has recently introduced companion legislation in the House.
Please send an email to the President and the Interior Secretary opposing the designation of 1 million acres of the California Desert as National Monuments.
