Bishop, Chaffetz unveil long-awaited lands bill in bid to block a Bears Ears National Monument

Washington • Reps. Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz introduced a package of bills Thursday with the immediate hope of preventing President Barack Obama from creating a Bears Ears National Monument in San Juan County.

Chaffetz offers plenty of fight, frugality

Rep. Jason Chaffetz often leads the national GOP chorus bashing Hillary Clinton over the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, ripping federal funding for Planned Parenthood or pushing to impeach the IRS boss.

Despite such roles for the 49-year-old chairman of the often-in-the-spotlight House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Chaffetz still sleeps on a cot in his office to save money. (He's on his second after the first broke in the middle of the night.)
