Two Utah congressmen are introducing legislation addressing two national monuments that President Donald Trump is drastically shrinking, turning one into a small national park and allowing Native Americans to help manage the other.

Republican Rep. John Curtis said at a press conference Tuesday that his measure on Bears Ears National Monument would allow Native Americans and local residents manage the land.
