Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is urging President Trump to radically shrink three marine monuments and to open them up to commercial fishing. The monuments, which were expanded under President Barack Obama, are vast, covering an area about three times the size of California. Zinke’s proposal comes after President Trump shrank national monuments including Bears Ears in Utah, opening up the protected federal lands to mining, logging, drilling and other forms of extraction.
