Rep. Bishop of Utah Amendment #2 – Protecting Private Property Rights (View Roll Call Vote)
This amendment would protect the rights of private property landowners adjacent to the proposed Waco Mammoth National Monument in Waco, TX.  It prohibits the National Park Service from creating “buffer zones” outside of the monument boundaries on private lands and interfering with how private property owners use their lands. The amendment would ensure that zoning decisions continue to be made at the local level.
