SVP legal action update of Grand Staircase and Bears Ears National Monuments

May 29, 2018
SVP's legal action against reduction of Grand Staircase and Bears Ears national monuments is still underway.  We are waiting for judicial ruling on a motion by Department of Justice to transfer to Utah district court, after which things should move forward.  See details from our co-plaintiffs Grand Staircase Escalante Partners: https://gsenm.org/legal-updates/
 
SVP Executive Committee and DC members visited members of the House Committee on Natural Resources this week to discuss why Grand Staircase and Bears Ears national monuments are important for paleontological science.  See our talking points at: http://vertpaleo.org/GlobalPDFS/FAQ-about-national-monuments-and-vertebrate-fossil.aspx
