John Freemuth recently was quoted in a High Country News article titled “Drilling threatens Dinosaur National Monument — again.”

The article quotes Freemuth on how interest groups will respond if the Trump administration increases drilling near protected monuments.

The article states that “If these struggles end up in court, they could snarl energy projects for years, backfiring on industry and Trump. ‘I would predict a great increase in litigation, as an attempt to slow it all down: That’s what (President George W.) Bush found out,’ said John Freemuth, a professor of public policy at Boise State University.”

Freemuth also has an essay in the latest issue of PERC Reports: The Magazine for Free Market Environmentalism. The issue explores how innovative solutions can help save our public lands for the future.
