President Signs Resolution to Repeal BLM Planning 2.0
March 31, 2017


President Trump this week signed a congressional resolution directing the Bureau of Land Management to repeal their Planning 2.0 Rule. Ethan Lane, executive director of PLC, applauded the action and called it a significant victory for western ranchers. "BLM's Planning 2.0 Rule would have caused a wholesale shift in management focus at BLM by prioritizing 'social and environmental change' over ensuring the multiple use of public lands," said Lane. "When you couple this with the elimination of stakeholder and local input, the rule was unworkable for western communities. We applaud the action by President Trump and look forward to working with the new Administration to bring together a streamlined planning process that works for livestock ranchers and the western communities that depend on the use of BLM lands."
