Ag steamrolled over monument rush

Oregon Food and Shelter,

OFS and many of our members are supporting the Owyhee Basin Stewardship Coalition. The coalition asked us to share the following with you:


The Race Is On

Special interest groups are pressing President Obama to create a flurry of new national monuments across the country during his final months in the White House, The Associated Press reports.

Obama has already created or expanded 24 national monuments, more than any other president. Environmental groups are encouraging him to expand his legacy by adding more monuments without local input or a vote of Congress

The Owyhee Basin Stewardship Coalition believes the public deserves a voice in how public lands are managed.

We need your help: Sign the petition
