  • Letter from President Bill Clinton to Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt (Nov. 10, 1998).

“Babbitt's ability to successfully promote protection of areas under the Antiquities Act depended on cooperation from the White House, and President Clinton obligingly sent Babbitt a letter requesting Babbitt's recommendations for areas deemed worthy of national monument status. In accordance with Alaska v. Carter, this insured that Babbitt's recommendations would not be subject to the NEPA process.” – Mark Squillace, The Monumental Legacy of the Antiquities Act of 1906, 37 Ga. L. Rev. 473, 540 (2003).
