ACTION ALERT

The White House is seriously considering designating three new National Monuments in the California Desert potentially totaling over one million acres.  On Tuesday, October 13, 2015, Senator Feinstein will be hosting a public meeting with administration officials in attendance to discuss these potential designations under the Antiquities Act.  Such a proclamation is unlikely to protect our OHV roads and trails and could prohibit rock collecting and hunting altogether.

Fortunately, Senator Dianne Feinstein and Representative Paul Cook have each introduced bills that would protect these lands while specifically allowing continued recreational use for OHV’ers, rockhounds and hunters.  Sen. Feinstein’s California Desert Conservation and Recreation Act, S.414, and Rep. Cook’s California Minerals, Off-Road Recreation, and Conservation Act, H.R.3668, would not only protect OHV-based recreation in these proposed National Monument lands, but would also protect and expand up to 360,000 acres specifically for OHV recreation areas.

We need you to write IMMEDIATELY to:

1)  President Obama –– respectfully request that he suspend the Antiquity Act process and support a legislative solution to protecting these lands.

2) Senator Lisa Murkowski (R - AK), Senate Committee on Energy & Natural Resources Chairman — respectfully request that she support the balanced approach of Sen. Feinstein’s S.414 to permanently protect OHV recreation on millions of acres in the California desert.

3) Your U.S. Representative –– respectfully request that they support Rep. Cook's H.R.3668 for its important and balanced protections for OHV recreation in the California desert.

PLEASE, DON’T WAIT!  The timing is now perfect for you to get involved and help protect OHV recreation, including access to rockhounding and hunting, in the California desert.

Thank you.
