Policy Resolution 2015-03: Public Lands Grazing

Western Governors' Association Policy Resolution 2015-03: Range livestock operations were established decades ago. These family-based operations are important contributors to the customs, cultures and rural economies of the West. Federal land management agencies’ actions in recent years have resulted in reductions or removal of domestic livestock from federal lands. Western Governors support sound, science-based management decisions for federal lands that should be based upon flexible policies that take into account local ecological conditions and state planning decisions for wildlife and other human needs. Read, download the Resolution
