KUNM Call In Show 6/29 8a: President Donald Trump has called for a review of more than two dozen national monuments that were designated under the American Antiquities Act of 1906. That includes the Rio Grande del Norte Monument near Taos and the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks Monument near Las Cruces. Advocates say the sites need protection and have boosted tourism in rural areas. Ranchers and others worry about more federal limits on land use.
