Guest: Amy Joi O’Donoghue, Environmental Reporter, Deseret News Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is in Utah this week taking a closer look at a couple of very large national monuments – Grand Staircase Escalante Monument designated by Clinton in 1996, and Bears Ears National Monument which was created by Obama on his way out of office. Both are opposed by Utah's Republican Congressional delegation and are included in a review President Trump has ordered of all national monuments created by his last three predecessors. Trump has suggested he could revise – or even rescind – any monuments he doesn't agree with.
