Sec. Zinke Submits Report On Bears Ears National Monument
Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke submitted an initial report to the White House Monday on his suggestions for the controversial Bears Ears National Monument in Utah.
The plans could diminish its size and put pressure on Congress to take further action. Under President Donald Trump’s April executive order to review monuments going back to 1996, Zinke had until last weekend to provide the White House with a quick review of possible rescission or trimming of Bears Ears.
Trump ordered the monument review at the urging of Senator Orrin Hatch and other elected officials from Utah.
