Secretary Zinke to speak at Days of ’47 Rodeo in Utah

July 23, 2018

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Interior Ryan Zinke is headed to Salt Lake City for a speech at a rodeo on the Utah holiday Pioneer Day.

The U.S. Department of the Interior announced in a statement Monday that Zinke will deliver an address at the Days of ’47 Rodeo on Tuesday. It’s one of several events on the Pioneer Day holiday that celebrates the arrival of Mormon pioneers in the Salt Lake Valley.

Officials didn’t immediately say what he would speak about.

Zinke has previously visited Utah while reviewing two national monuments ahead of President Donald Trump’s decision to downsize them last year and for a speech announcing steps toward big-game conservation at a hunting and conservation expo in February.
