Sen. Lee Thanks Sec. Zinke for Monument Report

August 24, 2017

SALT LAKE CITY - Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Thursday after Interior Sec. Ryan Zinke sent his report on national monuments to the White House.

"Sec. Zinke has done a fantastic job reaching out and listening to the local communities most affected by these monument designations," Sen. Lee said. "His conclusion that 'some monuments were either arbitrary or likely politically motivated' is spot on. I look forward to working with President Trump to ensure these abuses of federal power are rectified."
