ON August 24th, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke will recommend to the President of the United States that many of the most spectacular national monuments in the western U.S. be greatly reduced in size or eliminated altogether. We cannot allow this to happen.
In a recent meeting with Interior Secretary Zinke, as we discussed the Administration's public lands agenda, he said: "I am committed to the President's policy to make absolutely sure that national monuments and other national public lands are a major part of the President's energy independence initiative." He went on to say: "It is time for America to realize that these lands have to support an economic agenda which includes oil and gas drilling, coal, copper and uranium mining. America works best when idle land is developed."
