Cascade-Siskiyou Monument Loses One In Court

Federal law versus federal law in court means one law is going to lose.  In a recent case, the Antiquities Act lost in a case over the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument

President Barack Obama expanded the monument under the act, which contained a high percentage of O & C lands designated for logging--and county income--under the O & C Act.  A federal judge in Washington, DC ruled that the O & C Act wins. 

Dave Willis and Kristen Boyles, monument supporters, are not so sure.  They visit with their thoughts on expansion, contraction, and legal appeals.
