Utah GOP lawmaker again proposes multi-use NP unit out of Trump's remnant Grand Staircase-Escalante

A congressman from Utah has introduced legislation to create a sixth national park in the state out of remnants of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument that President Trump, in a move being contested in court, broke into pieces and reduced in size.


Coming this late in the congressional session, with the General Election just three weeks away followed by a lame duck session, the measure being pushed by U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart has little chance of gaining traction and passage.
