CEI Supports Resolution to Undo Bureau of Land Management Planning 2.0 Rule

The Competitive Enterprise Institute supports H.J.Res. 44, a Congressional Review Act resolution, aimed at rescinding the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Planning 2.0 Rule. Myron Ebell, director of CEI’s Center for Energy and Environment explains:

“The BLM’s land management planning process has broken down, largely as a result of endless litigation from environmental pressure groups. Nonetheless, the 2.0 Rule promises to be worse than the current dysfunctional situation. Rather than improving the process by enlarging the role of local elected officials and local people who are directly affected by BLM land management (such as grazing permittees, recreationists, and landowners adjacent to BLM land), the 2.0 Rule would actually diminish their input. Improving management of BLM lands in the West requires less centralized control and more local control, which is why the CRA vote is crucial to overturning this rule.”

Myron Ebell has long personal knowledge of the Bureau of Land Management and the agency’s lands-use policies. His family’s ranch adjoins BLM land in eastern Oregon.
