HATCH VOTES FOR AMENDMENT TO BAR USE OF ANTIQUITIES ACT TO CREATE NATIONAL MONUMENTS

WASHINGTON – Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, voted late Thursday for an amendment that would bar the Obama administration from misusing the 1906 Antiquities Act to create large new national monuments in Utah and eight other states.

Introduced by Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., the amendment was defeated by a 58-38 margin. Hatch was disappointed at the outcome.

“America’s public lands belong to the people, not to government officials and environmental extremists,” Hatch said. “Decisions about Cedar Mesa, the San Rafael and other potential monument sites should be made in consultation with state and local officials in Utah, not behind closed doors in Washington and without any public input.”
