President Trump has ordered the reduction and fracturing of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments, repealing protections for more than two million acres of public lands. This action ignores millions of Americans and hundreds of businesses who have communicated to his administration that this decision hurts local communities, harms local jobs, threatens Utah’s $12.3 billion outdoor recreation economy, and undermines our American heritage.
