With Dems taking over House, more oversight expected of DOI and all federal land management agencies

With Democrats gaining the majority in the House of Representatives, expect to see more inquiries into how the Interior Department is run, perhaps a slowdown or halt in the development of new management plans for Grand Staircase-Escalante and Bears Ears national monuments, greater oversight into reorganization of Interior, and more light of day for parks-related legislation offered by House Democrats.

Those changes in matters before the House Natural Resources Committee can be expected because Rep. Raúl Manuel Grijalva very likely will replace Republican Rob Bishop of Utah as chairman of the committee and be the one who decides the committee's business.
