Chairman Letter to The Honorable Neil Kornze


WASHINGTON, D.C., June 30, 2016 - TO: The Honorable Neil Kornze

FROM: Rob Bishop, Chairman House Committee on Natural Resources

Dear Director Konze:

I write to strongly encourage the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to revise, and re-open comments on, the "Draft Environmental Impact Statement for Previously Issued Oil and Gas Leases in White River National Forest, Colorado" (WRNF DEIS). Since the WRNF DEIS comment period closed in January, 2016, significant new information on the quantity and importance of the oil and gas resources addressed in the document has been published by the U.S. Geological Survey.
