I support Rescinding Bears Ears National Monument.
I feel that President Trump’s Executive Order, a Review of Certain National Monuments Established Since 1996, is absolutely necessary for the Bears Ears National Monument designation. The requirements and original objectives of the Antiquities Act was always meant to protect lands.
Lands designated over 100,000 acres, is truly a violation of the original intent of the Act, meant to not “exceed the smallest area compatible with the proper care and management of the objects to be protected.”
Native Americans, Local Residents and many people across our great nation have a clear majority in support of Rescinding Bears Ears National Monument.
I ask that President Trump listen to the people. Please reverse the designation of the Bears Ears National Monument for its undemocratic and unjust process. I request that no more National Monument designations be established in the State of Utah.
Sincerely, (your name & location)
