San Juan Commissioner Bruce Adams tells Interior Secretary Bears Ears Monument is Federal Overreach

Bureau of Land Management

Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke came to southeastern Utah Monday, marking day two of his four-day "listening tour" of the Bears Ears National Monument and Grand Staircase National Monument. 

But before Zinke came to Utah, he had a face-to-face meeting with San Juan County commissioner Bruce Adams in Washington DC. KSJD's Austin Cope talked with Adams to learn more about what came out of that meeting

Austin Cope is a former Morning Edition host for KSJD and now produces work on a freelance basis for the station. He grew up in Cortez and hosted a show on KSJD when he was 10 years old. After graduating from Montezuma-Cortez High School in 2010, he lived in Belgium, Ohio, Spain, northern Wyoming, and Himachal Pradesh, India before returning to the Cortez area. He has a degree in Politics from Oberlin College in Ohio.
