proposed – Escalante Canyons National Park, Utah

Most in the hiking community hate what Donald Trump and his minions have done in Utah– shrinking the Bears Ears National Monument by 85%.

But here’s some good news out of Utah.

Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, plans to introduce legislation to create a new national park in a piece of the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. …

The proposed Escalante Canyons National Park …

The size and exact location of the proposed park is unclear.  …

Only Congress can set aside land for a national park, while a president has power under the Antiquities Act to designate a national monument.

 

Rep. Chris Stewart proposes national park in Grand Staircase-Escalante

It could be that this is just a GOP diversion to deflect criticism.

On the other hand, some future Congress could move on this proposal to right the wrongs done by the Trump regime.
