Bishop Statement on Trump's Utah Visit


WASHINGTON, D.C., November 30, 2017 -

House Committee on Natural Resources Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement on President Trump’s upcoming visit to Utah:

“I thank President Trump for his upcoming visit to the State of Utah and for his commitment to listen to local voices and elected leaders from our communities. Utah has become ground zero for politically motivated national monument designations that are excessive in size and contemptuous of peoples’ livelihoods. The President has stood against prior abuses of executive power and his administration has demonstrated a commitment to work in concert with local communities to protect unique public antiquities and objects the right way. I look forward to joining the President and Utahns for this announcement and working with all stakeholders to build a better path forward and bring resolution to decades of overreach and controversy.”
