Drilling on Federal Lands Action Letter Image

Protect Our National Parks from Oil and Gas Drilling!

A new proposed bill in the House (H.J. Res. 46) would eliminate regulations that stop drilling on specific federal lands. This bill allows drilling on prized national parks, including places like the Grand Teton, the Everglades, and the Grand Canyon, where private interests own mineral rights underground.

Contact your Representative and tell them no drilling in our national parks!
