The Idaho Freedom Foundation is encouraged that President Donald Trump has signaled a willingness to review and reverse some of the more onerous federal land management policies of the Obama administration. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke is reviewing both Obama’s last-minute Antiquities Act land-grab and the unworkable and restrictive Sage Grouse Management Plan.

That summary is provided below.The voices of Idaho’s ranchers, loggers, miners, hunters, anglers, and recreationists need to be heard as federal land comprises nearly 62 percent of this great state.
