Environews: San Juan County government calls to restore Bears Ears
In February, the San Juan County Commission passed two resolutions to condemn President Donald Trump for illegally reducing the size of Bears Ears National Monument and to restore the original monument boundaries. In 2017, a federal judge required San Juan County to re-redraw racially gerrymandered council districts.
The three-person San Juan County Commission became majority Navajo in the 2018 general election.
