State of Utah's prescription for Bears Ears NMon? Cut it by 90%

If maps Utah has submitted to the Interior Department are a guide, Bears Ears National Monument will be drastically cut in size.  

The state’s vision, shared with Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, is to shrink Bears Ears to one-tenth its current 1.35 million acres, scaling the southeastern Utah monument down to about 120,000 acres surrounding Mule and Arch canyons west of Blanding, according to maps and other documents prepared by Gov. Gary Herbert’s office and obtained by The Salt Lake Tribune through records requests.
