The bill H.C.M. 2008 urges the U.S. Congress and President to repeal or amend the Antiquities Act of 1906. It specifically requests that the Act be revised to ensure that entire landscapes, animate life, and common plants are not considered landmarks, structures, or objects under federal law. Additionally, it calls for any presidential proclamations to be made publicly, detailing the specific landmarks, structures, and objects to be protected.

The bill also seeks to extend the limitation on establishing or expanding national monuments, which currently applies only to Wyoming, to all western states. It demands that no new national monuments or federal reservations, or expansions thereof, be established in Arizona without the express authorization of the Arizona State Legislature and the county board of supervisors of the affected counties. Copies of the memorial are to be sent to key federal officials, and the bill will become effective on the general effective date.
