"It is that much of the last two administrations took "state land" and made it "federal land".".... yes, true
but let's not forget about President Clinturd and the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument...so that's 3 administration.
I'm not against there being protected land but if the spectacular area covers 10K acres don't claim 2 million acres as a monument.
"When the President signed the Executive Order designating 1.7 million acres of land in southwest Utah as the Grand Staircase-Escalante National
Monument, his action placed the area off limits to mineral extraction and development.
The New York Times reported that the monument encloses the largest coal field in the nation, the Kaiparowitz Plateau, which contains at least 7
billion tons of coal worth over $1 TRILLION."
done as a pay off to illegal foriegn political contributors.
Trump should fix this one next.
