Trump to order review of national monuments

Trump to order review of national monuments

Utah's Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument - designated in September of 1996 by then-President Bill Clinton - is one bookend of the Interior Department's review of national monuments, while the other bookend is Bears Ears, designated last December by President Barack Obama in his final month in office, Zinke said. The Antiquities Act of 1906 states that the president has the authority to declare landmarks and other historically important sites as national monuments in order to protect the land from damage or development.

LePage argued that the ME monument was improper because it was not supported by the state. The two mesas, known as the Bears Ears, represent the latest battlefield in an escalating war over public lands - the results of which will have widespread implications for all Americans.

Speaking at an an Outdoor Industry Association event Tuesday, Zinke said the department's employees sometimes appear "too heavy-handed" in the name of law enforcement on public lands.

The Utah Legislature rushed to pass two resolutions at the start of the 2017 session calling on President Trump to rescind the Bears Ears monument and reduce the size of Grand Staircase. Sen.

Some businesses in the Katahdin region are not happy with Governor LePage's continued opposition to President Obama's National Monument designation.

Zinke said Tuesday in a briefing with reporters that he will make a recommendation on the contested parcel of land in 45 days and later provided Trump will a fuller report. Indeed, in all my years of public service, I have never seen a president so committed to reining in the federal government and so eager to address the problems caused by these overbearing monument designations.

The move, which was first reported over the weekend by the St. Lake Tribune, comes on the heels of a campaign by federal and state officials in Utah to get the Bears Ears designation scaled back.

The senators' statement urged the president "to live up to his repeated promises on the campaign trail to protect public lands for all Americans and uphold the existing protections for the 157 national monuments, which have been designated throughout the decades by almost every USA president of the last century".

Zinke told the Senate Energy and Commerce Committee this year that he would be open to reviewing recent national monument declarations.

Thanks to national monument designations, places that celebrate America's diversity and history are forever protected.

The area lies near where EOG Resources EOG.N - a Texas-based company - had been approved to drill. "It's extremely disturbing to see the Trump administration apparently laying the groundwork to remove protections on our public lands".

Conservation groups and Native American tribal representatives slammed the looming order, suggesting it would be fought in court. Environmental groups argue Trump wants to turn national monuments into mining and logging operations.

The review will focus only on monuments of 100,000 acres or larger, both on land and in federal water.

Short said the review is more about the impact on local landowners, although the review would include the Antiquities Act.

Activity on America's public lands is a major sector of the country's economy, providing millions of jobs and billions in tax revenue. A UtahPolicy.com poll published right after Bears Ears was created found 40% of Utahns said President Trump should rescind the monument while 46% said he should leave the monument alone.
