That same thing happened to us in Utah. With the stroke of a pen Bill Clinton created the Grand Staircase National Monument. It removed an area lager than Rhode Island and Delaware combined from use by local residents for anything other than sight seeing and tourist related service industries. Ranching, logging and other uses have stopped. That is why our legislature is trying to have Federal land in the state, 66% of the state, returned to state jurisdiction. At the very least, all BLM land should be given back to state jurisdiction.
