Heller should take a stand


LAS VEGAS SUN- Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., needs to protect and voice support for Gold Butte national monument, Nevada’s portion of the Grand Canyon and one of our state treasures.

Gold Butte is one of 27 national monuments that were placed under review through an executive order by President Donald Trump to determine whether federal protection for them should be reduced or eliminated.

This monument needs to be protected. Petroglyphs need to be preserved.

Sen. Heller needs to stand up to the president and advocate for the continued protection of Gold Butte and Nevada’s heritage.
