U.S. Rep. Tom O’Halleran has written a letter to Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke urging him to carefully consider the cultural significance of national monuments during a 120-day review.
The review, which President Donald Trump requested via an executive order on April 26, requires the secretary to examine the size and scope of the national monuments designated over the last 21 years. According to O’Halleran, however, these stipulations overlook the educational and historical value of many of these lands.
