WASHINGTON– Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01) joined with Congressman Jason Chaffetz (UT-03), Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) to issue a letter to the President addressing a recent proposal put for by the Outdoor Industries Association that requested the establishment of a new 1.4 million acre national monument in the state of Utah.
Specifically, the Outdoor Industries Association requested that the President use the Antiquities Act to create a new national monument around the existing Canyonlands National Park. Congressmen Bishop and Chaffetz, along with Senators Hatch and Lee oppose the use of the Antiquities Act to create a new national monument because it circumvents the open, public process and excludes input from local officials, community members, stakeholders and the state.
