Congressman Rob Bishop (R-UT) stopped by The Heritage Foundation today to meet with bloggers at The Blogger’s Briefing. Before the meeting, he sat down with us to talk about the Supreme Court taking up the Chicago gun-ban case and a possible move by the Department of the Interior to give up to 17 areas of land in the West the restrictive “national monument designation”.

We also discussed his concerns about the EPA’s decision to regulate CO2 emissions, which he characterized as “legislative function which is being usurped by the Executive Branch.” This is an issue about which Heritage is also concerned and on which we have written extensively.
