Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s recommendation Monday to reduce a vast national monument in Utah is part of a review ordered by President Donald Trump of 27 national monuments established or expanded by three other presidents since 1996.

His recommendation on the other monuments is due in late August. The Bears Ears National Monument was given priority in the review, which is why Zinke issued his interim report earlier than the others.
