Bishop Statement on BLM’s Environmental Impact Statement on the Sage Grouse
WASHINGTON, D.C., December 6, 2018 | Committee Press Office (202-225-2761)
House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-Utah) issued the following statement today regarding the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) updated sage grouse recovery plan:
“Today’s Environmental Impact Statement signals a positive step promoting locally developed state recovery plans for the Sage Grouse. This is a stark transition from the heavy-handed ‘one size fits all’ federal approach of the Obama administration. While much remains to be done, state and local authorities recognize their voices are being heard by the Trump administration. We are one step closer to making federal micromanagement and fears of frivolous litigation by the environmental activist industry a thing of the past.”
