Zinke's NMon report—which was not given to USBLM to fact-check—contains "more than a few simple factual errors," NM Dem senator says

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke's draft report on national monuments he believes should be reduced in size or opened to resource extraction was not run by U.S. Bureau of Land Management officials for fact-checking and contains a number of errors, according to agency officials.

The report, which was leaked to the press Sunday, contained a handful of errors, at least, ranging from where exactly Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument is located in relation to the U.S.-Mexico border to whether hunting and fishing are currently allowed on the monument, according to John Ruhs, the acting deputy director of operations for the land-management agency.
