Trump arrives in Utah to announce scaling back of monuments

Protesters rally in Grand Junction against National Monument decision Donald Trump to slash size of national parks in Utah to allow drilling

Trump's announcement, which amounts to the largest rollback of national monuments in U.S. history, follows a months-long review by the Interior Department that he ordered in April to identify which of 27 monuments designated by past presidents should be rescinded or resized to provide states and local governments more control of the land. After that, he'll have a meeting with officials for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Days saint, and a possible tour of Welfare Square.

Leaked maps revealed proposals to shrink boundaries at Bears Ears national park from 1.3 million acres to 201,000 acres while Grand Staircase Escalante will be slashed by half to just under one million acres.

Trump exited the plane with Hatch and was greeted by cheers from a crowd assembled for the arrival. He made the announcement at the State Capitol, where hundreds of people who oppose the announcement had lined up in Monday's wintry weather hours before Trump was scheduled to arrive.

Ranchers, local governments and some tribal leaders and other residents have applauded Trump's decision.

The Trump administration can resize an existing national monument thanks to a provision in The Antiquities Act of 1906.

Trump signed an executive order in April asking for a review of his predecessors' use of the to designate federal lands as national monuments.

- Bears Ears National Monument, designated by President Barack Obama by proclamation a year ago. "This should never have happened". And it could be the first of many changes to come. "We know how to fight and we will fight to defend Bears Ears", Filfred said. The former Montana congressman's plan would allow logging at a newly designated monument in ME and more grazing, hunting and fishing at two sites in New Mexico.
