Bennet Statement on Moving the Bureau of Land Management Out West
Washington, D.C. -- Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement regarding relocating the Bureau of Land Management out West:
"I am generally supportive of moving as much of the federal government out of Washington as is practically possible. Moving the Bureau of Land Management would provide needed perspective and expand efficiencies and opportunities for how we manage our lands and resources. Any move must be more than symbolic; it must also provide the resources necessary to properly manage our public lands without further underfunding the agencies."
