Obama to designate 5 new national monuments

President Obama will declare five new national monuments Monday, ranging from 240,000 acres on a high-desert plateau in northern New Mexico to early European settlement sites along the Delaware River. The designations are aimed, in part, at quieting critics who in recent months have called on the president to expand his use of the 1906 Antiquities Act to conserve land as compensation for lands the administration has made available for oil and gas development.
