Sierra Club Calls for Release of Public Land Monument Recommendations

WASHINGTON, D.C. –(ENEWSPF)–August 25, 2017.  The Sierra Club today filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking details on recommendations from Interior Secretary Zinke on the future of public lands protected as national monuments. The summary report from Secretary Zinke was void of any actual recommendations or decision-making metrics.

In response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune issued the following statement:

“Secretary Zinke’s slapdash summary report on his recommendations for the future of some of the country’s most spectacular and important public lands is deeply disturbing. The only real information conveyed in the report was Zinke’s willingness to sweep aside overwhelming support for preserving public land safeguards. We won’t be hustled. The truth is in the details, which is what we plan to find out with this request.”
