BLM Grazing Regulation Updates
Western ranchers are fed up with outdated grazing regulations. Research confirms managed livestock grazing provides immense benefits to public lands. However, today’s grazing regulations are inflexible and fail to allow cattle and sheep producers to maximize beneficial management, proving a disservice to the health of rangeland and wildlife that depend on these resources. The Bureau of Land Management currently is revisiting the regulations from the mid-1990s, and is looking for your input to make common-sense changes to the grazing regulations. Join us in giving BLM strong input by submitting comments through March 6!
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NOPR) to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA)
The White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has published a list of proposed changes to the way the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) is implemented. These are welcome changes as NEPA has not undergone any major updates for nearly 40 years and is severely outdated, with many opportunities for abuse. Ranchers and livestock producers depend on grazing permits, range improvements, critical transportation projects, and access to USDA programs that all can be delayed by the bureaucratic red tape that delays NEPA. Join us in our efforts to support NEPA modernization by commenting through March 10!
