The action alert you are attempting to access is no longer active.
However, we would like to keep you apprised of how ARRA has been involved on this issue by providing the text of the original action alert that was sent to our members. If you have not already done so, please join ARRA to receive any updates on this issue that may occur as well as other important action alerts.
Original Action Alert:
On July 9, 2014 Colorado Representatives Scott Tipton (R-3) and Cory Gardner (R-4) wrote Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to express concerns “…regarding President Obama’s use of the Antiquities Act to unilaterally designate massive blocks of land across the West as National Monuments.”
Send an email to Secretary Jewell opposing any unilateral decision to move forward with massive, inappropriate National Monument designations in Colorado and join Representatives Tipton and Gardner in urging the Administration to meaningfully consider the input of ALL local stakeholders in land use decisions.
It is imperative that the President and Secretary Jewell hear from you as all sorts of multiple uses including motorized recreation will likely be shut out of National Monument areas.
Americans for Responsible Recreational Access (ARRA) was formed to ensure that Americans are not arbitrarily denied the right to responsibly experience and enjoy the public lands that belong to the citizens of the United States. The members of ARRA, which include horseback riders, personal watercraft users, off-highway vehicle and snowmobile riders, and vacationing families, have joined together to provide input on decisions regarding land use designation, recreation opportunities, and preservation. Its members seek responsible consideration of competing activities, which are based on sound environmental principles.
No alliance member believes that recreation enthusiasts have the right to exclusive, unregulated use of our national heritage, but all oppose land closure or extreme regulation, which denies responsible citizens access to public lands for multifaceted recreational pursuits.
ARRA focuses on the entire spectrum of issues surrounding the Crisis of Closure. We work with the Administration and its agencies, Congress, local governmental representatives and most importantly, the citizens who care about maintaining access to public lands and waterways for outdoor recreational activities.
ARRA also serves as a central clearinghouse for the many like-minded initiatives and individuals who fight for fundamental fairness in public land designation and recreation opportunity.
