I support S. 61 ("A bill to include the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands in the California Coastal National Monument") because this important legislation will permanently protect this spectacularly beautiful piece of California's coastline and will provide the only opportunity for land-based interpretation of the CCNM, enhancing enjoyment and understanding of our natural environment. This is hugely important to our local community, those who know and appreciate the land and look forward to sharing it with visitors.

I oppose S. 61 ("A bill to include the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands in the California Coastal National Monument") because the government has control over more land than is necessary already. Next, they'll be giving it to China to mitigate our foreign debt.
