WASHINGTON – League of Conservation Voters Legislative Representative Alex Taurel issued the following statement regarding the Obama administration’s announcement today that California’s Fort Ord will be America’s newest national monument:

“We strongly applaud President Obama for protecting one of America’s special places so that future generations can enjoy this precious open space as well as recognize the service of the men and women who were stationed at Fort Ord.  President Obama’s strong leadership today preserves a remarkable piece of America and its history, which will create jobs by enhancing local tourism and recreational businesses.  We welcome today’s national monument designation and look forward to continuing to work with the Obama administration to preserve more of America’s national treasures.”
