That's some wishful thinking right there. To think this administrations only goal was to let cattle graze on gov't land and give to the people is purely naive. The land is gonna lose its federal protection and sold to the highest bidder. Maybe cattlemen will buy up some of the acreage but you better believe the wealthy elite behind all the money in our land will suck it all up.
I do hope in years time your perception is right but that's a pipe dream.
If this change of hands back to the state of Utah (presumably) stands, it has yet to be seen what will happen to it. Some states do a better job of preserving natural heritage than the Federal government. Of course, some don't.
