New Poll Shows Majority of Arizonans Oppose Effort to Lock Up 1.7 Million Acres
by Executive Order

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Paul Gosar (AZ-04) released the following statement after a new scientific poll conducted
by Coleman Dahm & Associates found that 71.6% of Arizonans are opposed to the ongoing effort by special interest groups to lock up
1.7 million more acres in Northern Arizona by presidential executive order under the Antiquities Act:

“The latest polling numbers confirm that Arizonans from across the political spectrum are strongly opposed to special-interest groups
attempting to lock up 1.7 million acres in the Grand Canyon Watershed. We simply can’t afford any more land grabs by the executive
branch at the behest of extremist environmental groups which include the Sierra Club and Center for Biological Diversity.

“There is no pending threat to the Grand Canyon and this National Park already has numerous protections including the Grand
Canyon Protection Act, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. It defies commonsense that proponents are trying to convince the
public that a new 1.7 million acre monument is necessary to protect a 1.2 million acre National Park that already has plenty of
protection.

“Left wing organizations can oversample Democrats in Flagstaff and use deceptive push poll language in their feeble attempts to try
and drum up support for this terrible proposal. The fact remains that Arizonans oppose this land grab by a large margin and this
scientific poll confirms that fact.”

On April 20, 2016, Coleman Dahm & Associates completed 499 telephone interviews (on both landlines and cell phones) with
registered Arizona Voters throughout the state of Arizona. The margin of sampling error for the study’s statewide and 4th
Congressional District results is +/- 5% at the 95% confidence level. Click HERE to read the full poll memo.
Question asked: “The federal, state and tribal governments in Arizona already own 81.8 percent of all Arizona land, leaving just 18.2
percent open to private owners.  Do you support the special interests’ effort to lock up 1.7 million more acres in Northern Arizona by
presidential executive order - which could kill jobs, harm tourism, agriculture and water rights, and prevent hunting and fishing?”
