“An unvarnished attack”: Enviros pan latest GOP proposal to rewrite Antiquities Act

A move Wednesday to drastically rewrite The Antiquities Act that presidents of both parties have used for more than a century to establish national monuments drew immediate criticism from organizations ranging from hunters and anglers to retired National Park Service personnel.

While U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop's public relations staff has been busy sending out releases condemning recent uses of the act, saying it had turned into a "menace to constitutional government," opponents described the Republican's effort to rewrite the act that President Theodore Roosevelt signed into law in 1906 as an "unvarnished attack on our national parks and public lands."
