Rumors are growing that President Obama will designate a monument in Utah before the end of the year and Utah leaders are urging citizens of the state to share their opposition with the President. Senator Mike Lee took to social media on Wednesday urging Utahns to send letters, emails or make phone calls to Washington, D.C. to let their feelings be known on the damage that would result from a monument designation. Bear Ears in San Juan County is the likeliest target and one that cannot afford to take such a hit, according to Senator Lee. “Please don’t make this mistake,” shared Lee to President Obama. “Please don’t take this step...there is widespread opposition... [and] keep in mind this is the poorest County in Utah.” Lee is among other Utah leaders who have promised that if a designation does happen under Obama’s administration, he will work tirelessly to see it undone as well as work to repeal the Antiquities Act.
