SHERIFF TRACY: KEEP CURTIS IN CONGRESS

June 6, 2018

An op-ed by Utah County Sheriff Jim Tracy was published by the Daily Herald in their  June 6, 2018 edition. In the opinion piece, Sheriff Tracy outlines his concerns about school safety and maintaining second amendment rights of US citizens. He also adds his name to the long list of endorsements Congressman Curtis has received going into the 2018 primary election.

Sheriff Tracy said, “In order to implement effective solutions to a problem as complicated as school shootings, we need people who are willing to have conversations with people with whom they may disagree. It will take someone who is committed to listening to all stakeholders and then working together toward effective solutions. Congressman Curtis has shown he is that type of lawmaker. He has earned my support in the June 26 Republican primary.”

PUBLIC LANDS COUNCIL SPEAKS ON EMERY COUNTY LANDS BILL

PUBLIC LANDS COUNCIL SPEAKS ON EMERY COUNTY LANDS BILL

May 29, 2018

Submitted by Emery County Public Lands Council. The introduction of the Emery County Public Land Management Act of 2018, under the sponsorship of Sen. Orrin Hatch and Representative John Curtis, is an event that citizens of Emery County have been looking forward to, and working to bring about, for more than two decades. The proposed bill represents 23 years of concentrated efforts by Emery County officials and the citizen-based Emery County Public Lands Council to develop a comprehensive plan that will protect and preserve the county’s most spectacular and pristine areas while also preserving the county’s ranching heritage, sustaining local economic development, and allowing recreational access to these remarkable lands.

The Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 gave the Interior Department 15 years to complete an inventory of public lands that met the qualifications for wilderness protection. These lands were then provided temporary protection as Wilderness Study Areas with the expectation that Congress would act promptly to either designate the lands as wilderness or else return them to multiple use management. More than 40 years later, the “temporary” WSA status is still in place in Emery County, leaving both the county residents and the local BLM officials in uncertainty as to the eventual designation or non-designation of the land and the ultimate status of existing roads, grazing, mineral development, and recreational opportunities.

The responsibility for developing a comprehensive plan was assigned to the Emery County Public Lands Council, a group of citizen volunteers representing a variety of interests and backgrounds and appointed to advise the County Commission and the Public Lands Administrator. The PLC adopted some principles to guide their work. First, this was to be an open process with various stakeholders, both within and outside of the county, invited to enter into the discussion. Second, decisions would be based on a close, on-the-ground study. Wilderness boundaries were to follow visible landscape features such as roads, cliff bases, or canyon rims in order to enable effective management. Third, every decision should be subjected to the standard of common-sense reasoning, rather than a particular ideological position.

Numerous stakeholder groups and individuals, including conservation organizations, livestock and mineral development interests, wildlife organizations, motorized and non-motorized recreation groups, congressional staffers, and state officials responded to the invitation to participate. Countless hours and thousands of miles were spent in on-the-ground visits to every section of a county that is larger than some states. Updated maps and discussion points were published on the county Public Lands website, and several open meetings were convened to gather public comments.

The resulting Emery County Public Land Management Act of 2018 represents one of the most important developments in public lands legislation in recent history. This act, when the exchanges of state trust lands are completed, will create 577,986 acres of permanent, congressionally designated wilderness, plus an additional 383,380 acres in the San Rafael Swell Western Heritage and Historic Mining National Conservation Area, 2,543 acres in the Jurassic National Monument, and 9,350 acres to an expanded Goblin Valley Utah State Park, for a total of 973,259 acres of conservation land. These conservation areas will have permanent protection from new roads, mining, drilling, and other forms of development. At the same time, traditional public access will be preserved through existing roads and trails, and existing grazing, hunting, hiking, rafting, climbing, and other outdoor activities will continue. The remaining public lands of Emery County will continue in multiple-use management, vitally important to the health of a rural natural resource economy.

The proposed Wilderness designation represents an increase of 146,000 acres beyond present Wilderness Study Areas in Emery County. Most of the increase goes to an enlarged Desolation Canyon Wilderness, which will preserve one of the most pristine roadless areas in the nation. In addition, the only two sizeable roadless areas in the Manti-LaSal National Forest in Emery County, Candland Mountain, and Nelson Mountain, are also proposed for Wilderness status.
