Utahns Tell Governor Herbert to Stop the War on Utah’s Wilderness

About 80 people gathered at the Utah governor’s mansion today to protest a slew of anti-environmental policies, including recent threats to take over 30 million acres of public land and to sue the federal government over more than 25,000 bogus “road” claims across parks and proposed wilderness.  The jovial crowd held signs reading “Governor Herbert: Stop the War on Utah’s Wilderness” and “Keep Public Lands in Public Hands,” among others.  Honks of approval from passing cars were heard from inside the mansion, where governors from neighboring western states had been invited for an environmental strategy session.
