Miller advocates for the people closest to the area to manage the natural resources which can cost less and be more effective. He draws a correlation from a joint coalition focusing on the endangered species Utah Prairie Dog, and the idea of encouraging local management of public lands.
Representatives from different factions gathered at the Utah Prairie Dog Summit held on March 15, 2013 in Cedar City. Miller said, that the goal was two fold--first, to respect private property rights and second, to accomplish the goal of recovering the Utah Prairie Dog by looking for solutions instead of divisions.
"In a nine-month time frame, we took this challenge literally and provided a solution which would otherwise have cost $130 million and up to 30 years which was proposed; and we did it with virtually no cost, and again, in nine months," Miller said.
