Enviros to Biden: Get on with reversing Trump's NMon cuts

National and regional environmental organizations called on President Biden to restore the boundaries of national monuments shrunk by the Trump administration, urging the White House to take action more than two months after the Interior Department submitted recommendations.

The Trump Interior Department reduced the boundaries of Bears Ears monument by about 85 percent and Grand Staircase-Escalante by nearly 50 percent. In June, Biden's Interior Secretary Deb Haaland recommended the earlier boundaries be restored, as well as rolling back another Trump-era decision allowing commercial fishing in the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument off Massachusetts.
