Bishop Statement on BLM Reorganization


WASHINGTON, D.C., July 15, 2019 -

Today, Ranking Republican Rob Bishop (R-Utah) released the following statement on the Department of the Interior’s decision to relocate the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

 “Secretary Bernhardt is promoting a thoughtful, methodical approach that is a true win for the West. I’m pleased that a significant number of personnel will be coming to Utah and other Western states. The BLM personnel will be moved where they will have a greater impact on, and input by, the people who live in the regions where their influence is greatest. Not by bureaucrats from thousands of miles away.

 “I will continue to work with the Secretary to determine that the positions moving to Utah are placed in the most effective areas in the state. Secretary Bernhardt’s efforts have brought logic to where these positions will be most effective and I sincerely hope that politics and dogma in Washington don’t stifle this effort to make government more responsive.”
