John Freemuth was quoted in High Country News

Portrait of John FreemuthJohn Freemuth recently was highlighted in a Conversation piece titled “Do we have too many national monuments? 4 essential reads.”In it, Freemuth is quoted as saying, “Use of the Antiquities Act has fueled tensions between the federal government and states over land control – and not just in the Southwest region that the law was originally intended to protect. Communities have opposed creating new monuments for fear of losing revenues from livestock grazing, energy development, or other activities, although such uses have been allowed to continue at many national monuments.”
