The President cannot threaten livelihoods and property rights with national monuments.

The Antiquities Act authorizes the president to establish national monuments, but Congress limits the size and scope of those monuments. Presidents who ignore those limits violate the Constitution’s separation of powers, trample private property rights, and undermine the democratic process.

To Our Donors

Only Congress makes laws and the president must follow them rather than stretching them far beyond their legal limits to end legitimate private use of public land. By investing in PLF, you empower ranchers like Chris Heaton to restore their livelihoods, property rights, and rule of law. Thank you!
