I don't really understand why he is so hated on here. As far as conservative politicians go, i always thought he was pretty good. If it's soley because of HR 621 and HR 622 then that seems a bit simple minded. There are far more important issues in this country than public lands. With that said they do need to be protected. In the end, Chaffetz listened to his constituents after seeing the reaction to HR 621 and HR 622 and killed 621. Isn't that a politicians job? To listen to the people and work in their interest? I wish it would have never been proposed but at least he listened, even taking the time to meet with Cam Hanes.
I do not live in UT so I can't say I know what all he has been up to but after seeing how he handled things as the Chairman of the Oversight Committee I'd like to think he's better than most, although that's not saying much when it comes to politicians.
Maybe I'm speaking out of my ass, and if I am let me know as I honestly don't know everything he's done while in office and he very well could be another bad apple.

You may feel that public lands is not important, I personally hold them in very high regard.
He literally said "they do need to be protected" in regards to public lands. I agree with his point that Chaffetz listened to his constituents. I dont think he realized how often Chaffetz went after public lands.
