We already know more than we will ever understand.
We already understand more than we will ever need in order to take action.
We are ready now. We must do it.
Or... we will kill it.
We have been at its throat so very, very long.

A bill was introduced on November 18, 1999 by Arizona Senator John McCain to authorize a study of alternatives to the current management of certain Federal lands in Arizona. It directs the Secretaries of Defense and Interior to:
  1. Study and report to Congress on measures to improve management of the Federal lands in Arizona constituting the Barry M. Goldwater Range and the Organ Pipe National Monument.
  2. Assess the feasibility and practicability of the establishment of a national park or national preserve in all or parts of such Federal Lands.
  3. Develop recommendations for actions for the geological, historical, biological, scientific, scenic, wilderness, recreational, and wildlife values of the Sonoran Desert and contribute to the furtherance of the national defense.

The bill has been referred to the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources.
