WASHINGTON, D.C.
– Representative Ruben J. Kihuen released the statement below following the announcement by President Trump ordering a review of national monument designations:

“By threatening national monument designations that stretch back more than two decades, President Trump is making one thing clear today – he doesn’t give a damn about Nevadans. For years, presidents from both parties have designated national monuments to help protect some of our country’s most beautiful natural treasures, like Gold Butte. Gold Butte’s designation as a national monument was a huge win for Nevada, giving our state the resources and tools we need to safeguard this land. I am deeply disappointed that President Trump has ordered a review of these monuments, that could potentially lead to a loss of status and funding.”
