Move the BLM to Utah, where it manages 43 percent of the state

Commentary from Frank DuBois of THE WESTERNER. My best guess is no, BLM will not be moving to Utah. Zinke is adamantly opposed to transferring federal lands to the states and Utah is the leader of that movement, so I don’t believe Zinke will reward them with the BLM headquarters.

I figure he will go with a less controversial, “greener” location like Colorado. Could be wrong, and either way, it will be interesting to watch.

And as I’ve said before, they would accomplish more by amending the laws BLM administers instead of wasting their time and energy on a reorganization. This will be a symbolic gesture at best, and will not bring the change on the range that is needed.

Almost two-thirds of Utah is federally managed public land, and of that, the BLM administers more than 22 million acres, or 43 percent of the state. With so much BLM land in Utah, it makes sense for the agency’s headquarters to relocate here, taking them to the heart of what they manage.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
