Senate Continues Effort To Give Locals Land Control

The US Senate passed a resolution earlier this week to void the BLM’s Planning 2.0 rule that took effect in December. The Planning 2.0 rule gave future control to the BLM for planning and use of nearly 250 million acres of public land, concentrated in western states, including Colorado. Senator Cory Gardener, who voted for the resolution, said the rule is an example of Washington’s failed one-size-fits-all approach to policy making, and highlights how little Washington bureaucrats actually know about the west. Gardner says he plans to continue to work to update the BLM’s policies to provide more flexibility to Colorado and the western United States. The resolution now must be signed by President Trump to take effect.
