Western Energy Alliance has been supporting efforts to relocate BLM out West and has helped drive that discussion forward. I recently testified before the House Natural Committee’s Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee in a hearing about reorganizing the Department of the Interior (DOI).Besides showing support for moving the BLM headquarters out West, where 99% of the land and economic impact from public lands are located, I discussed other ideas for DOI reorganization that Secretary Zinke has floated. [[{"fid":"4248","view_mode":"default","fields":{"format":"default","...
