July 10: Last Day for Comment on National Monuments Review

11 Juillet 2017

The U.S. Department of the Interior is now reviewing the designations for 27 of our national monuments. The 346,177-acre monument was created in 2014.

Ani Kame'-enui with the National Parks Conservation Association believes President Donald Trump's executive order to review the monuments amounts to an attack on the Antiquities Act, which grants the president the power to protect sites on land already owned by the federal government.

In April, President Trump directed Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke to review 27 monuments of more than 100,000 acres created since 1996.

Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXST) Upgraded to "Hold" by BidaskClub
ValuEngine raised Nexstar Broadcasting Group from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a research report on Thursday, June 29th. Louisiana-based Louisiana State Employees Retirement has invested 0.14% in, inc. (NYSE:EVR) for 115,000 shares.

Now protected under the Antiquities Act of 1906 - legislation that reflected the naturalist passions of Republican President Theodore Roosevelt - the monuments are treasured by many tourists, locals and environmentalists alike, but also eyed by businesses (and their workers) prevented by statute from exploiting their lands and waters.

This StoryMap showcases 13 of the monuments in question. The Department of Interior is accepting public comments through July 10.

If you want to submit your comments, they have to be done before midnight Monday.
