Bighorn sheep are at risk in Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument #NPS

At 1.88 million acres, Utah's Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is larger than the combined footprints of the state's "Mighty 5" national parks and Cedar Breaks National Monument.

That's too big, according to a resolution approved Wednesday by the Utah Senate after passage last week in the House.

HCR12 calls on Utah's federal delegation to support a reduction or modification of the monument, which was created by then-President Bill Clinton in 1996.
