Dem representative wants Zinke to declare original Bears Ears NMon area off-limits to mining, O&G

Though he's probably fighting uphill, U.S. Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva wants members on the House Natural Resources Committee to sign off on a letter to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke asking that he withdraw the land inside Bears Ears National Monument’s "traditional, lawful boundaries from new oil, gas and mining claims."


The move comes shortly ahead of the Feb. 2 opening of much of the monument to new extraction claims, which could be maintained even when President Trump’s illegal shrinking of the monument is overturned in court, according to a release from the Arizona Democrat's office.
