Bennet Statement on Canyons of the Ancients Recommendation

Washington, D.C. - Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement regarding Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's recommendation not to modify Colorado's Canyons of the Ancients National Monument:

"This is welcome news, but many of our shared public lands are still at risk, including Bears Ears. Coloradans have made clear that they want public lands to remain public and protected. Secretary Zinke should recognize that our monuments belong to all Americans and abandon this useless review. "
