> Over the last 25 years, an increasing expanse of our nation's public

> These reserves have been created with virtually no congressional

> legislative authority. The public and local governments are almost never

> These international agreements have several significant adverse

> _ Domestic land use policy making authority is farther centralized at

> _ The role that ordinary citizens have in making land use policy

> _ The Executive Branch may invoke these international agreements in an
