Rep. Beto O’Rourke introduces Castner Range National Monument Act

EL PASO, Texas – Rep. Congressman Beto O’Rourke introduced the Castner Range National Monument Act in an effort to protect the area by making it a national monument.

Castner Range is a 7,081-acre mountain range surrounded by the Franklin Mountains State Park in Northeast El Paso.
The bill is a result of a community effort led by the Frontera Land Alliance, the Franklin Mountains Wilderness Coalition and other environmental community leaders who have been working to protect Castner Range since the 1970s.

If the bill passes, Castner Range would become the first national monument in west Texas and also the largest in any metropolitan U.S. city.
The legislation would eventually transfer the mountain range from the Department of Defense to the Department of Interior.
O’Rourke said Castner Range deserves to be protected and preserved in its natural state and that’s what the bill is intended to do.
