STOP REP. ROB BISHOP'S INDIAN LAND GRAB!
To the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the United States, Congressman Paul Ryan:
We, the undersigned, respectfully call upon you to use your position as Speaker of the House to stop any and all assaults on American Indian Tribal Lands, such as the attempts by Rep. Jason Chaffetz to undo the Bears Ears Monument and the so-called "Utah Public Lands Initiative" (PLI) by Rep. Rob Bishop. The PLI is nothing but a modern day Indian land grab! Under the guise of "special management", Congressman Bishop has crafted deceptive bills, purporting to support the interests of the State of Utah, public lands, and school trust lands. This is nothing but a 21st Century Indian Land grab, the first of its kind in over 100 years.
Rep. Bishop and some others in Congress are engaging in all out assault on Indian sovereignty, Indian land and water rights, and even Indian identity rights. It is time the Speaker of the House stepped in and said enough is enough!
Protect Bears Ears!
Stop the PLI!
