Utah’s public lands are a treasure, not a battleground for partisan politics, which usually excludes those with vested interests. As I've talked with various interested parties, I have found there is more common ground than many would lead us to believe. Certainly, some public lands are suited for natural resource extraction. But we must preserve Utah’s historical culture, breathtaking vistas, and unique, world-class landscapes for ourselves and future generations. These are among our planet’s greatest treasures.
