Dr. John Freemuth was quoted in an Associated Press article

John Freemuth was quoted in an article on a proposed federal cattle grazing plan for central Idaho’s Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve, which immediately came under fire from environmentalists.

According to the article, Freemuth noted that 410,000 acres of the monument was designated as a preserve by Congress following efforts by U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson in 2002. For it to no longer be a preserve would require another act by Congress, Freemuth explained.

“They can’t touch the part that Simpson got in in 2002,” he said.
