Utah GOP rep introduces bill that would rewrite Antiquities Act, severely restricting NMon provision

A Utah congressman long unhappy with the authority given presidents under The Antiquities Act to establish national monuments has introduced legislation that would extensively rewrite the century-old act. If enacted, the rewrite would limit the purposes for which monuments could be created, require environmental review of proposed designations, and allow presidents to reduce the size of monuments without congressional action.

The measure was immediately rejected by the National Parks Conservation Association, which called it frivolous.
