house Bill H.R. 1719

Should Congress Expand the Historic Site Honoring Influential Conservationist John Muir?

Argument in favor

There’s no reason that the Dept. of the Interior shouldn’t accept a donation of 44 acres to expand the John Muir National Historic Site.

CBO estimates doing this will COST NOTHING. It also adds 44 acres to the National Parks System. As a country, we need to start changing our priorities toward saving our planet instead of destroying it.

John Muir's work helped save some of our nation's oldest and most iconic landmarks. This will honor his legacy and further our cultural heritage.

Argument opposed

Before allowing the Dept. of the Interior to accept this donation, Congress should require that they have a plan in place to manage it.

Quit spending money on these frivolous honors. We can't keep honoring everybody that does something special.

Who's donating the 44 acres??? Did the Cali liberals claim eminent domain to steal somebody's land??? The Feds always have some "good" reason for their land grabs, don't they?! I VOTE NAY!

Who donated the land? How will maintenance be included in the current budget?

    44 acres in the San Francisco Bay Area would be an easy target for some high profile real estate mogul. Protect the site!

    We should do as much as we can to protect as much land as we can for things such as national historic sights. Given than John Muir was an environmentalist I think this is exactly what he would've wanted.

    The idiots on here saying they are 'against' because it is a 'waste of money' have the same intellectual capacity and curiosity as their orange haired circus barker leader... if they had read all of the provided information, they'd see the cost is zero. Even if there were a cost, I'd much rather have my tax dollars going to something that actually benefits the people, unlike trumps agenda. He literally has done nothing good for america. Nothing.
