Earthjustice Reacts as Trump Administration Finalizes Its Plans for Drilling and Grazing in Bears Ears and Grand Staircase

This headlong spree to open up monument lands to extractive industries and development is illegitimate, and could only be done by turning a blind eye to the law and flat out ignoring the Native American tribes for whom Bears Ears is sacred.”
