University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law Professor John Ruple was quoted in EE News in an article titled, “Will Warren’s plan push climate to the forefront?”
The article states:
John Ruple, a professor at the University of Utah’s S.J. Quinney College of Law, said Warren’s full plan for reimagining the role of public lands could have a significant audience in the West. She released it in advance of a campaign trip this week that took her to Colorado and Utah.
“Public lands are a significant issue in the West, and especially in Utah, where two-thirds of the land is federally managed. Public lands management decisions impact everyone from hunters and anglers, to oil and gas developers, to Native Americans,” he said.
“We are more than ‘flyover’ states that fuel America’s energy economy and provide vacation hot spots for people from the coasts,” Ruple said. “We are home to millions of Americans who care deeply about public lands and who want to hear a thoughtful vision that demonstrates an understanding of what public lands mean to our region and the diverse people who live here.”
