BLM announces to move H.Q. from DC to CO

Interior Department officials said they hope to open new Bureau of Land Management headquarters in the western Colorado town of Grand Junction and complete job shifts by September 2020, according to the Associated Press.

The Trump administration said the move will save millions of dollars and trim a “top heavy” office, according to the AP story.

WASHINGTON — Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt released the following statement on Bureau of Land Management Realignment:

“A meaningful realignment of our operations is not simply about where functions are performed; rather, it is rooted in how changes will better respond to the needs of the American people. Under our proposal, every Western state will gain additional staff resources. This approach will play an invaluable role in serving the American people more efficiently while also advancing the Bureau of Land Management’s multiple-use mission. Shifting critical leadership positions and supporting staff to western states — where an overwhelming majority of federal lands are located — is not only a better management system, it is beneficial to the interest of the American public in these communities, cities, counties, and states.”
