Sage-Grouse Task Force Co-Chairmen Gov. John Hickenlooper and Gov. Matt Mead sent a letter on Sept. 29, 2014, to Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service leadership admonishing them for not sitting down with Western states for discussions to assess how combined state and federal efforts can address threats that influence the vitality of the greater sage-grouse. The Governors said: "We are displeased regarding how states are being consulted with respect to an issue of such overriding importance." Read, download the Letter
