    "....to conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects and the wild life therein and to provide for the enjoyment of the same in such manner and by such means as will leave them unimpaired for the enjoyment of future generations." I would implore any member of Congress to vote yes and protect our nation's history. Furthermore, they should read above excerpt from the Organic Act of 1916 and keep it in mind when considering the abolition of any park unit, such as the newly established Bears Ears NM.

    This act is legally amending the public law defining the boundaries of the complex to facilitate the fact that they changed the name of one of the buildings on site. Calm down people

    How can citizens say yes or know when the verbiage is either secretive or non descript. Nay ....no trust on this bill.

    Where is the full text of this bill. Impossible to tell if this is a good thing or not. "And for other purposes" is never a good sign. Potential waste.

    Elaborate more on your potential purposes! The people are tired of vague verbiage and then sly dirty action behind the scenes!
