“There are people who graze livestock, people that like to hunt, people that like to hike, people that like to trail run,” said Barber, who has worked at the monument since it was created. “We’re trying to be fair.”
All of this was already allowed under the original monument rules. This is about being pro-industry. When I spoke to multiple BLM employees about the plan options at the GSENM open house, they were all pushing for the no change to status quo option. After the initial monument public comment period and overwhelming pro-monument comments, I highly doubt that public sentiment leaned toward making the rules more lax.

My US Senate and House reps (Lee, Romney, Stewart) could care less about this. I've resorted to donating to and calling Ben McAdams.

Looks like the GSENM management plan and EIS is open for comment through 9/23. I refuse to acknowledge the illegal downsizing, so still calling it the monument.
I'm considering commenting but want to be better informed before doing so. My preference is to restrict mining and other industrial development. In this information (https://eplanning.blm.gov/epl-front-office/projects/lup/94706/20001992/250002377/01_GSENM-KEPA_Proposed_RMPs-Final_EIS_Executive_Summary.pdf) I think I'm understanding correctly that Alternative B is the choice that's most environmentally-friendly and therefore the best fit with my preference. Correct? Thanks for any help you can provide.

I have called and emailed stating my disagreement with any downsizing. It’s hard to express my current opinion of this administration and opposition to it’s actions. It’s all bad from my point of view.

That's how I also interpreted the alternatives with the exception of mineral leasing/disposal. The status quo (plan A) actually maintains more closed areas; no new leases are allowed. The mineral leasing and disposal maps in Appendix A lay it out visually (attached screenshots). There isn't a plan A disposal map since it's not allowed anywhere.

The frustrating part is that this is all of this is going forward without Congressional approval or public support. Everything is for sale with this admin.

It’s a disaster.
