****CARA ALERT -- Call Your Congressman!!


STOP THE CONDEMNATION AND RELOCATION ACT - CARA!!!


WHAT YOU SHOULD DO IMMEDIATELY!!


>>>>>CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN and both Senators at the Capitol Switchboard
at (202) 224-3121 to oppose CARA. There is a temporary FREE NUMBER of
(800) 648-3516. URGE THEM TO VOTE NO on CARA. NO massive trust fund!
NO land grabs!


>>>>>YOUR CONGRESSMAN WILL BE HOME FOR TWO WEEKS OVER EASTER
BREAK----- Many of them will hold town meetings to meet with you. It is
very important that you call their office to find out where they will be.
Call their office in Washington, DC or their local office. Get their
schedule.


>>>>>Plan to ATTEND ANY TOWN MEETINGS close to you. Call at least five
friends to urge them to attend as well. You must make your Congressman
confront the CARA Land Grab


>>>>>WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN A SHORT LETTER opposing CARA. He won't
receive it until after Easter so you still need to call and attend a town
meeting. But the letter is very important. Below are listed a number of
reasons to oppose CARA. Pick out a few that you feel comfortable with, put
them in your own words, and send the letter. Don't put this off. You can
send the same letter to your Senators.

You must let YOUR CONGRESSMAN know you oppose CARA. Nearly 100 Congressmen
have signed on as Co-sponsors of CARA, most of them Democrats. But a lot
of Republicans have signed on too. When you call, ask if your Congressman
is a co-sponsor.

When you call, be sure to tell whoever answers the phone that YOU OPPOSE
CARA, PERIOD!!


You successfully fought off an attempt to push CARA on the Senate side in
the Budget last week. Your calls and faxes do work.


HERE'S WHY YOU MUST OPPOSE CARA

-----CARA (HR-701) , the Conservation and Reinvestment will provide over
$45 billion dollars over 15 years in a guaranteed trust fund, most of it
for land acquisition. This is virtually the same bill you fought off last
year;

-----The real name for CARA should be THE CONDEMNATION AND RELOCATION
ACT for that is what it really does;

-----CARA sets aside $3 billion per year that does not have to compete in
Congress for funds in the appropriations process with medical care,
education, defense or any other social need. Why should land acquisition
and condemnation of private land get a higher priority than the military?
MAKE CARA COMPETE - NO TRUST FUND;

-----Government agents and appraisers get well OVER ONE BILLION DOLLARS PER
YEAR TO CONDEMN PRIVATE PROPERTY. No one is safe. Eminent Domain will be
rampant;

-----Environmental law firms receive grant money so they can sue YOU into
bankruptcy;

-----Extremists gain $60 million dollars per year to train an ARMY of
investigators who will trespass on your land to LOCATE AND POLICE
ENDANGERED SPECIES;

-----ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS clamor for - you guessed it - money money
money - to reintroduce wolves that kill livestock and run cattle ranchers,
farmers, inholders and landowners off their land;

-----CARA would provide billions of dollars over fifteen years for
government agents to condemn private property and then turn it into
wilderness - no access, no people;

-----CARA funds SHUTTING DOWN RECREATIONAL AND COMMERCIAL ACCESS to
the federal lands by making more lands available for more wilderness
designations like President Clinton has done;

-----"Non-government organizations" (NGOs) win funding to draw up UNITED
NATIONS Biosphere Reserves, override national sovereignty and eliminate
private property rights;

-----CARA will fund new UN Biosphere Reserves and UN World Heritage Sites;

-----Lands cut off by Forest Service Roadless Rule will become targets for
CARA as well;

-----CARA helps make more LANDS OFF-LIMITS TO ENERGY EXPLORATION AND
DEVELOPMENT;

-----All lands with Endangered Species will be targets of land acquisition
- there will be no limit;

-----Green groups will seek to designate hundreds of areas of private land
as new Federal areas;

-----Much of the MONEY WILL GO TO THE NATURE CONSERVANCY and other
giant green land trusts;

-----HUNTERS AND SPORTSMEN WILL LOSE ACCESS to acquired lands;

-----Inholder families are specifically targeted in the new bills;

-----Hundreds of small communities in existing Federal areas will be wiped
off the map;

-----Land acquisition has always been used as a WEAPON TO REGULATE AND
CONTROL PRIVATE LANDOWNERS;

-----LAND ACQUISITION DRIVES AWAY EMPLOYERS The community and its
future are left in doubt;

-----CARA (HR.701) will make it more difficult to build homes and
businesses in rural areas;

-----NO PRIVATE PROPERTY WILL BE SAFE with these funds available.
FARMERS WILL BE ESPECIALLY HARD HIT;

-----The Federal agencies should take care of what they have before buying
more land;

-----Billions of dollars of private land will be TAKEN OFF THE TAX ROLLS
forcing local taxes up;

-----Congressional Appropriations Committee estimates the FEDERAL AGENCIES
ARE $12 BILLION BEHIND IN DEFERRED MAINTENANCE. Any money should go for
maintenance, not land acquisition; and

-----There should be no net loss of private land in America.


Don't let your Senators or Congressman think you have let down on
CARA. You must rise up quickly to let them know in no uncertain terms that
land acquisition is bad, PERIOD!

Don't think someone else will do it. You must do your part.


PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE TO AT LEAST FIVE OTHER PEOPLE
