Standing Of Maine’s Recently Formed “Katahdin Woods and Waters” National Monument Threatened By Trump’s Executive Order.
This is a consequence of the Executive Order signed by Trump last week to have the validity and status of the number of National Monuments reexamined — since a President can create a National Monument on their own without Congressional approval.
This monument was created by President Obama less than a year ago, on August 24, 2016.
Republicans in Maine hate it — because it was Obama and because they want no federal interference.
This could get ugly.
Shame. I have never been. It is way far North than I have yet travelled in Maine. Acadia is about my limit.
