Bishop Statement on the Nomination of William Pendley to Head of BLM

Today, Ranking Republican Rob Bishop (R-Utah) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s intent to nominate William Pendley as head of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM):

“William Pendley brings the perspective and experience that is needed to help BLM avoid bureaucratic inertia and overcome decades of chronic federal lands mismanagement.  The arrows lodged at him by fringe left special interest groups tell us that we have the right man for the job.  I appreciate all of the work Mr. Pendley is already carrying out at the Department.”
