Vote Description

S. 2012 Lee Amendment Presidential Authority to Declare National Monuments (Roll Call 10)



The Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) amendment to the North American Energy Security and Infrastructure Act of 2016 ("Energy Bill") would put restrictions on the president's ability to declare national monuments by requiring federal and state laws also approving the monuments. ACU opposes the overuse of national monument designations, which are supposed to be reserved for important historical landmarks, and supported this amendment. The Senate defeated the amendment on February 2, 2016 by a vote of 47-48.
