Hastings Letter to Secretary Jewell Regarding Unfulfilled Requests on the National Blueways Program


WASHINGTON, D.C., October 25, 2013 -

Dear Secretary Jewell:

This letter follows up on prior communications, including June 28, 2013 and July 29, 2013 letters requesting 15 categories of documents and information, about the Department of the Interior's ("Department") Secretarial Order 3321 ("Order").

This Order established the "National Blueways System," a "headwaters to mouth approach to river management." This information is needed in order for the American people and Congress to have a better understanding of how the Blueways process has evolved and how the Department intends the system to work in the future. The Department has not met the deadline from the Committee on Natural Resources ("Committee") for providing the requested information.

Read the entire letter HERE.
