WVP statement on Governor Herbert’s PLI alternative

Chris Saeger, Director of the Western Values Project, released the following statement in response to news that Utah Governor Gary Herbert is pursuing an alternative to Congressman Rob Bishop’s Public Lands Initiative:

“The fact that Governor Herbert is throwing Congressman Bishop and the Public Lands Initiative under the bus is a sure sign that the bill cannot pass in time to become law by the end of the year. Congressman Bishop should stop this pointless political charade and start working with the administration to address the imminent threats to the Bears Ears.”
