LETTER: Western Governors propose changes to BLM processes, Desk Guide

Western Governors encouraged the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to consider revisions to its Desk Guide to Cooperating Agency Relationships in a letter sent to Acting Director Brian Steed on March 7, 2018. The governors requested that BLM consult with states on any efforts to revise the Desk Guide or implement BLM’s review of its land use planning and National Environmental Policy Act processes while these efforts are being developed and implemented. They also stated: “BLM should reach out to individual states and determine how best to facilitate meaningful consultation with Governors.” Read, download the letter.
