POLL: Do you support Bears Ears National Monument designation?

President Barack Obama designated Bears Ears National Monument near Cedar Mesa, Utah, on Dec. 28, 2016. The designation of the 1.35-million-acre monument ended years of debate over which would come first: federal protections, such as a monument designation, or the preclusion of federal protections and the opening of the area to extractive industry development, such as Rep. Rob Bishop's failed Public Lands Initiative bill. Native American tribes in the Bears Ears region and a majority of Utahns supported monument designation, but Utah's all-Republican congressional delegation and mostly Republican legislature opposed the designation in favor of allowances for extractive industry development. How do you feel about the monument designation?
