Washington, D.C. — Idaho Senator Mike Crapo introduced legislation Thursday to limit Presidential power related to the designation of national monuments.  Crapo’s bill comes in advance of new designations likely to be made by the Obama Administration over the course of the next two years, potentially including the Boulder-White Clouds in Idaho.

Senators Jim Risch (R-Idaho) and David Vitter (R-Louisiana) joined Crapo in introducing S. 228, the National Monument Designation Transparency and Accountability Act, which would require Congressional approval before any new national monument designations are finalized.
