Tribes want more representation on advisory board for downsized Bears Ears NMon; only 2 slots now

SALT LAKE CITY — A 15-person advisory committee for the downsized Bears Ears National Monument on Utah land considered sacred to Native Americans will include two spots for tribal representatives — three less than what a tribal coalition thinks they should get.

The Bureau of Land Management said Thursday that it will accept nominations until Oct. 1 for spots earmarked for people from different groups who are interested in contributing opinions about the management of the 315 square mile-monument (816 sq. kilometers) in southeastern Utah.
