Pacific Legal Foundation Applauds Administration’s Monument Review

August 24, 2017 I By PACIFIC LEGAL FOUNDATION

Department of Interior and Secretary Zinke announced the conclusion of an extensive, public review of national monuments August 24, 2017. The agency has not disclosed its recommendations for individual monuments, which will be made public after the President reviews them.

But the report leaves no doubt that past Antiquities Act abuse has been a serious problem and that President Trump has the authority to modify existing monument boundaries, including significant reductions in size if necessary or appropriate to comply with the text and purpose of the Act.
