White House puts advisory panel for Cape preserve on hold

In an unprecedented move, the Trump administration has ordered the local commission that advises the Cape Cod National Seashore to suspend its meetings until further notice, the first such decree since the 40-mile preserve was founded in 1961.

The order has raised fears that the administration could disband the commission or pack it with new appointees, potentially undermining the sanctuary’s conservation efforts and other environmental protections.


“The news came as a shock to many of us,” said Richard Delaney, chairman of the commission and a member since the 1980s. “I’m very concerned. We’ve never had this happen before, even when other administrations went through transitions.”

“A lot of my members are angry, and they don’t understand the implications,” he added.

"To us, this is one of our most important resources,” Cape Cod resident David Weiss said. "Conserving this land is obviously to us - extremely important."

Every other month, delegates from each town on the Cape take concerns from residents and offer recommendations to the federal government.

But their meeting scheduled for Monday isn't happening - and when they'll meet again is unclear.

The chairman of the commission, Rich Delaney, told Boston 25 News the Department of Interior postponed all future meetings."




OK, conservatives, 'splain this.
The People, on a local level, get together every other month to discuss what is best for this piece of shoreline in their neighborhood. Local control, direct will of the people etc.

But, now overreaching big government reaches out from Washington to tell them that they can't do that and to just keep their mouths shut.

Where, in the conservative bible do I find this?

"The American People" that politicians in DC continually talk about apparently consist of themselves, their political party, their big contributors, lobbyists, and influential individuals.

The rest of us are S.O.L.

Trump thinks it would make an excellent casino and hotel extravaganza.
