Trump Orders Review of a Controversial Obama Era Federal Power Grab…

The Trump administration is reviewing millions of acres of land under federal government protection, compiling a list on Friday of 27 designated national monuments that can be eliminated or reduced in scope.

From Fox News:

The list is composed of 22 monuments on federal land in 11 mostly Western states, including the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante in Utah, Nevada’s Basin and Range, and Katahdin Woods and Waters in Maine.

The other five on the list are marine monuments in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, including a huge reserve in Hawaii established in 2006 by President George W. Bush and expanded last year by President Barack Obama.

Bush, Obama and Bill Clinton were among a host of presidents who protected hundreds of millions of acres under a 1906 law that authorizes the president to declare federal lands and waters as monuments and restrict their use.

Trump when signing the executive order criticized the former presidents of abusing the system and vowed to return such authority to citizens and state lawmakers

“Today, we are giving power back to the states and people where it belongs,” he said.

Trump called Obama’s use of the 1906 Antiquities Act an “egregious abuse of power.”
