House chairman invites Chouinard to testify on monuments

House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) wants Patagonia CEO and founder Yvon Chouinard to appear before the panel to discuss the Antiquities Act in light of President Trump’s decision to significantly shrink two national monuments in Utah.

In a letter to Chouinard on Friday, Bishop said, “it is apparent through multiple media accounts and appearances that you have strong feelings on the topic.”

“The committee believes that major public policy decisions involving millions of acres of public land should be discussed, debated, and considered in the light of day,” Bishop wrote.

“The committee also believes it is important to understand and allow for all perspectives to be presented fairly and respectfully.”
