Please help review documents on land grab

by Rep. Denny Rehberg, Clark Fork Chronicle, May 19 2010 [here]

Please help me review recently released documents regarding secret plans to declare millions of acres in Montana as national monuments. The Department of Interior has released 383 of their previously secret pages regarding ongoing plans to declare millions of acres as National Monuments. They continue to withhold at least 2,016 pages of documents, including the missing pages of the original “Internal Draft” memo that was discovered earlier this year.

A few hundred pages of documents are just a fraction of what I’ve asked for, and these pages only raise more questions and underline the reasons Montanans are rightfully concerned. We now find references to plans that we were told weren’t in the works. This doesn’t pass the smell test.

These documents clearly reveal that other DOI agencies including the National Park Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Bureau of Reclamation have been involved. Powerful environmental interest groups have also been invited to the table.

The more we learn, the more urgent it becomes to pass legislation preventing a repeat of the gross abuse of power we saw in the waning days of the Clinton Administration. I will do everything in my power to prevent the federalization of Montana land.

Please READ as much as you can [here], and SHARE anything that is interesting, disturbing or suspicious. What did you find? Please be sure to include a detailed description of what you found, the name of the document you found it in and an explanation of why it’s important [here].

I have read through a bunch of that stuff, and I am really trying to dig up other stuff. This really makes me mad. I have not found much but I thought you might find this amusing:


Maybe use their own form against them.
