THANKS TO YOU!
S 2098, a Companion Bill to HR 901 (The American Land Sovereignty
Protection Act) Has Been Introduced in the
Senate by Senator Ben Campbell (R-Colorado)
HR 901, The American Land Sovereignty Protection Act, and its Senate companion,
S 2098, asserts the Constitutional power of Congress over management and use of lands
belonging to the United States by requiring the specific approval of Congress before any
area within the US is made a World Heritage Site or Biosphere Reserves. These
international land reserves are created without the approval of Congress and with
virtually no Congressional oversight.

|The Capital Switchboard is:
|The address for all Senators is:
||The Honorable _________________
||United States Senate
||Washington, DC 20515
- The public, state and local governments, are not informed of pending designations and
no public process is followed in nominating an area for World Heritage Site or Biosphere
- World Heritage Site and Biosphere Reserve designations give the international
community an open invitation to interfere in US domestic policy decisions.
- Although the United Nations has no direct input into management decisions in
Biosphere Reserves or World Heritage Sites, the United States does agree to comply with
international agreements, some of which may restrict use of private property.
- Federal agencies take international land designations into account when making
land-use decisions and formulating long range management plans.
- UN land designations centralize policy-making authority in the Executive Branch
bureaucracy and reduce input into Federal land-use decisions by individual citizens.
- By creating these UN land reserves, the US indirectly agrees to terms of
international treaties, such as the Convention on Biological Diversity, to which the US is
not a party or which the US Senate has refused to ratify.
