             971          (3) Printed copies of the maps referenced in Subsection (2) shall be available for
             972      inspection by the public at the offices of the Utah Association of Counties.
             973          (4) The state finds with respect to the grazing zones described in Subsection (2) that:
             974          (a) agricultural livestock industry on the lands comprising these zones has provided a
             975      significant contribution to the history, customs, culture, economy, welfare, and other values of
             976      each area for more than 100 years;
             977          (b) the potential for abundant natural and vegetative resources exists within these zones
             978      if managed properly, that will support and expand continued, responsible agricultural livestock
             979      activities and wildlife habitat;
             980          (c) agricultural livestock activities in these zones and the associated historic resources,
             981      human history, shaping of human endeavors, variety of cultural resources, landmarks,
             982      structures, and other objects of historic or scientific interest are worthy of recognition,
             983      preservation, and protection;
             984          (d) (i) the highest management priority for lands within these zones is the preservation,
             985      restoration, and enhancement of watershed and rangeland health to sustain and expand forage
             986      production for both livestock grazing and wildlife habitat, and the restoration and development


             987      of historic, existing, and future livestock grazing and wildlife habitat resources in order to
             988      provide protection for the resources, objects, customs, culture, and values identified above; and
             989          (ii) notwithstanding Subsection (4)(d)(i), if part or all of any zone lies within a sage
             990      grouse management area, then the management priorities for such part shall be consistent with
             991      the management priorities set forth in Subsection (4)(d)(i) to the maximum extent consistent
             992      with the management priorities of the sage grouse management area;
             993          (e) subject to Subsection (4)(d)(ii), responsible development of any deposits of energy
             994      and mineral resources, including oil, natural gas, oil shale, oil sands, coal, phosphate, gold,
             995      uranium, and copper, as well as areas with wind and solar energy potential, that may exist in
             996      these zones is compatible with the management priorities of Subsection (4)(d)(i) in these
             997      zones; and
             998          (f) subject to Subsection (4)(d)(ii), responsible development of any recreation
             999      resources, including roads, campgrounds, water resources, trails, OHV use, sightseeing,
             1000      canyoneering, hunting, fishing, trapping, and hiking resources that may exist in these grazing
             1001      zones is compatible with the management priorities of Subsection (4)(d)(i) in these grazing
             1002      zones.
             1003          (5) The state finds with respect to the zones described in Subsection (2) that the
             1004      historic levels of livestock grazing activity and other values identified in Subsection (4) in each
             1005      zone have greatly diminished, or are under other serious threat, due to:
             1006          (a) unreasonable, arbitrary, and unlawfully restrictive federal management policies,
             1007      including:
             1008          (i) de facto managing for wilderness in nonwilderness areas and non-WSAs;
             1009          (ii) ignoring the chiefly valuable for grazing designation of the Secretary of the Interior
             1010      applicable to each of these zones; and
             1011          (iii) the arbitrary administrative reductions in animal unit months of permitted forage;
             1012          (b) inflexible federal grazing practices that disallow grazing at different times each year
             1013      proven to be most effective for maintaining and enhancing rangeland conditions;
             1014          (c) mismanagement of wild horses and burros resulting in competition for forage by
             1015      excess and mismanaged populations of wild horses and burros in Beaver and Emery counties;
             1016          (d) improper management of vegetation resulting in the overgrowth of pinion, invasive
             1017      species, and juniper, and other woody vegetation that:


             1018          (i) compromise watershed and rangeland health;
             1019          (ii) crowd out grazing forage;
             1020          (iii) degrade habitat and limit wildlife populations;
             1021          (iv) reduce water yield; and
             1022          (v) heighten the risk of catastrophic wildfire; and
             1023          (e) other practices that degrade overall rangeland health.
             1024          (6) To protect and preserve against the threats described in Subsection (5), the state
             1025      supports the following with respect to the zones described in Subsection (2):
             1026          (a) efficient and sustained policies, programs, and practices directed at preserving,
             1027      restoring, and enhancing watershed and rangeland health to maximize:
             1028          (i) all permitted forage production for livestock grazing and other compatible uses,
             1029      including flexible grazing on and off dates adaptive to yearly climate and range conditions; and
             1030          (ii) forage for fish and wildlife;
             1031          (b) a cooperative management approach by federal agencies, the state, and local
             1032      government agencies to achieve broadly supported management plans for the full development
             1033      of:
             1034          (i) forage resources for grazing livestock and wildlife; and
             1035          (ii) other uses compatible with livestock grazing and wildlife utilization;
             1036          (c) effective and responsible management of wild horses and burros to eliminate excess
             1037      populations; and
             1038          (d) effective and responsible management of wildlife habitat.
             1039          (7) The state requests that the federal agencies that administer lands within each
             1040      grazing zone:
             1041          (a) fully cooperate and coordinate with the state and the respective counties within
             1042      which each grazing zone is situated to develop, amend, and implement land and resource
             1043      management plans, and implement management decisions that are consistent with the
             1044      purposes, goals, and policies described in this section to the maximum extent allowed under
             1045      federal law;
             1046          (b) expedite the processing, granting, and streamlining of grazing permits, range
             1047      improvements, and applications to enhance and otherwise develop all existing and permitted
             1048      grazing resources located within each grazing zone, including renewable vegetative resources;


             1049          (c) allow continued maintenance and increased development of roads, power lines,
             1050      pipeline infrastructure, and other utilities necessary to achieve the goals, purposes, and policies
             1051      described in this section and consistent with multiple use and sustained yield principles;
             1052          (d) refrain from any planning decisions and management actions that will undermine,
             1053      restrict, or diminish the goals, purposes, and policies for each grazing zone as stated in this
             1054      section;
             1055          (e) subject to Subsection (4)(d)(ii), refrain from implementing a policy that is contrary
             1056      to the goals and purposes described within this section; and
             1057          (f) refrain from implementing utilization standards less than 50%, unless:
             1058          (i) implementing a standard of less than 50% utilization on a temporary basis is
             1059      necessary to resolve site-specific concerns; and
             1060          (ii) the federal agency consults, coordinates, and cooperates fully with local
             1061      governments.
             1062          (8) (a) The state recognizes the importance of all grazing districts on Utah BLM and
             1063      Forest Service lands but establishes the grazing zones described in Subsection (2) to provide
             1064      special protection and preservation against the identified threats found in Subsection (5) to
             1065      exist in these zones.
             1066          (b) It is the intent of the state to designate additional grazing agricultural commodity
             1067      zones in future years, if circumstances warrant special protection and preservation for new
             1068      zones.
             1069          (9) The state calls upon applicable federal, state, and local agencies to coordinate with
             1070      each other and establish applicable intergovernmental standing commissions, with membership
             1071      consisting of representatives from the United States government, the state, and local
             1072      governments to coordinate and achieve consistency in planning decisions and management
             1073      actions in zones described in Subsection (2) in order to achieve the goals, purposes, and
             1074      policies described in this section.
             1075          (10) Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, and subject to Subsection
             1076      (4)(d)(ii), the state's mineral, oil, gas, and energy policies and plans on land within the zones
             1077      described in Subsection (2) shall be governed by Sections 63J-4-401 and 63J-8-104 .

             1181      recognition, preservation, and protection;
             1182          (d) (i) the highest management priority for lands within these zones is maintenance and
             1183      promotion of forest and vegetation ecosystem health achieved by responsible active
             1184      management in development of historic, existing, and future timber, logging, and forest
             1185      product resources in order to provide protection for the resources, objects, customs, culture,
             1186      and values identified above; and
             1187          (ii) notwithstanding Subsection (4)(d)(i), if part or all of any zone lies within a sage
             1188      grouse management area, then the management priorities for such part shall be consistent with
             1189      the management priorities set forth in Subsection (4)(d)(i) to the maximum extent consistent
             1190      with the management priorities of the sage grouse management area;
             1191          (e) subject to Subsection (4)(d)(ii), responsible development of any deposits of energy
             1192      and mineral resources, including oil, natural gas, oil shale, oil sands, coal, phosphate, gold,
             1193      uranium, and copper, as well as areas with wind and solar energy potential, that may exist in
             1194      these zones is compatible with the management priorities of Subsection (4)(d)(i) in these
             1195      zones; and
             1196          (f) subject to Subsection (4)(d)(ii), responsible development of any recreation
             1197      resources, including wildlife, roads, campgrounds, water resources, trails, OHV use,
             1198      sightseeing, canyoneering, hunting, fishing, trapping, and hiking resources that may exist in
             1199      these timber zones is compatible with the management priorities of Subsection (4)(d)(i) in
             1200      these timber zones.
             1201          (5) The state finds that the historic levels of timber, logging, and forest products
             1202      activities in the zones described in Subsection (2) have greatly diminished, or are under serious
             1203      threat, due to:


             1204          (a) unreasonable, arbitrary, and unlawfully restrictive federal management policies,
             1205      including:
             1206          (i) de facto managing for wilderness in nonwilderness areas;
             1207          (ii) ignoring the multiple use sustained yield mission of the Forest Service;
             1208          (iii) ignoring the fact that the Forest Service's parent agency is the United States
             1209      Department of Agriculture whose mission includes providing timber as an important
             1210      agriculture resource; and
             1211          (iv) the arbitrary administrative reductions in timber, logging, and forest products
             1212      activities;
             1213          (b) improper management of forest vegetation resulting in the overcrowding of old
             1214      growth alpine species and the crowding out of aspen diversity, all of which results in:
             1215          (i) devastation of entire mountainsides due to insect infestation and disease;
             1216          (ii) reduced water yield;
             1217          (iii) increased catastrophic wildfire;
             1218          (iv) increased soil erosion;
             1219          (v) degradation of wildlife habitat; and
             1220          (vi) suppression and threatened extinction of important rural economic activities; and
             1221          (c) other practices that degrade overall forest health.
             1222          (6) To protect and preserve against the threats described in Subsection (5), the state
             1223      supports the following with respect to the zones described in Subsection (2):
             1224          (a) efficient and responsible development, within each timber zone, of:
             1225          (i) robust timber thinning and harvesting programs and activities; and
             1226          (ii) other uses compatible with increased timber, logging, and forest product activities,
             1227      including a return to historic levels of timber, logging, and forest product activity in each of
             1228      these zones;
             1229          (b) a cooperative management approach by federal agencies, the state, and local
             1230      governments to achieve broadly supported management plans for the full development, within
             1231      each timber zone, of:
             1232          (i) forest product resources; and
             1233          (ii) other uses compatible with timber activities; and
             1234          (c) effective and responsible management of wildlife habitat.


             1235          (7) The state requests that the federal agencies that administer lands within each timber
             1236      zone:
             1237          (a) fully cooperate and coordinate with the state and the respective counties within
             1238      which each timber zone is situated to develop, amend, and implement land and resource
             1239      management plans and implement management decisions that are consistent with the purposes,
             1240      goals, and policies described in this section to the maximum extent allowed under federal law;
             1241          (b) expedite the processing, granting, and streamlining of logging and forest product
             1242      harvesting permits, range improvements, and applications to enhance and otherwise develop
             1243      existing and permitted timber resources located within each timber zone, including renewable
             1244      vegetative resources;
             1245          (c) expedite stewardship programs to allow private enterprise to carry out the timber,
             1246      logging, and forest activities described in this section;
             1247          (d) allow continued maintenance and increased development of roads, power lines,
             1248      pipeline infrastructure, and other utilities necessary to achieve the goals, purposes, and policies
             1249      described in this section and consistent with multiple use and sustained yield principles;
             1250          (e) refrain from any planning decisions and management actions that will undermine,
             1251      restrict, or diminish the goals, purposes, and policies for each timber zone as stated in this
             1252      section; and
             1253          (f) subject to Subsection (4)(d)(ii), refrain from implementing a policy that is contrary
             1254      to the goals and purposes described within this section.
             1255          (8) (a) The state recognizes the importance of all areas on BLM and Forest Service
             1256      lands high value lumber and forest product resources but establishes the special Timber
             1257      Agricultural Commodity Zones to provide special protection and preservation against the
             1258      identified threats found in Subsection (5) to exist in these zones.
             1259          (b) It is the intent of the Legislature to designate additional Timber Agricultural
             1260      Commodity Zones in future years, if circumstances warrant special protection and preservation
             1261      for new zones.
             1262          (9) The state calls upon applicable federal, state, and local agencies to coordinate with
             1263      each other and establish applicable intergovernmental standing commissions, with membership
             1264      consisting of representatives from the United States government, the state, and local
             1265      governments to coordinate and achieve consistency in planning decisions and management


             1266      actions in the zones described in Subsection (2).
             1267          (10) Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, and subject to Subsection
             1268      (4)(d)(ii), the state's mineral, oil, gas, and energy policies, as well as its grazing policies, on
             1269      land within zones described in Subsection (2), shall continue to be governed by Sections
