Post Dealing with Clinton's Monuments

With the start of the Bush Administration it is finally the right time to
with the illegal Clinton national monument designations. Now we have the
right way to do it.

Congressman Chris Cannon is pushing for the creation of a national
to review them and make appropriate recommendations to President-elect Bush.
He is asking people to sign a petition at
his effort. (This site also has more information about his idea and the
problems with these monument designations.)

In my opinion, Rep. Cannon clearly has come up with the best way to deal
this problem.

Dealing with these monuments will be a very tough political battle. There
widespread public misconceptions about monuments that the enviros will
attempt to exploit as usual. The majority of the media will add to the
problem by
their inevitably inept and biased coverage of any effort to eliminate any
monuments or shrink their boundaries to legal size.

Yet, the essential foundation of a successful political strategy to
these goals must be a meticulously documented and exhaustive record created
a governmental entity. That means field hearings, exhibits, the whole bit.

Congress does not have the staff or the time to do this job. And, anyway,
there are other more important resource issues that only Congress can deal
with. President Bush can probably do most of what needs to be done on these
monuments under his existing authority.

Certainly, the federal land management agencies cannot be trusted to be in
charge of such a review.

That leaves as the only viable alternative a national commission like the
that Rep. Cannon is recommending.

Everyone who understands-or even suspects--that Clinton and Babbitt acted
illegally and unwisely in designating these monuments should
support him.

We need to get as many people as possible behind him on this. Please
this on to everyone you think would sign the petition.
