Ranchers Seek Positive Action from Incoming Bureau of Land Management Director

WASHINGTON (October 1, 2021) – The Public Lands Council (PLC) and National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) today issued the following statement on the Senate confirmation of Tracy Stone-Manning as Director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM):

“The BLM has been without Senate-confirmed leadership for multiple years, so today’s confirmation is an important step for an agency that manages hundreds of millions of acres across the West. Public lands ranchers are ready to get to work with Director Stone-Manning, especially because the mission of the BLM is critical to the future of these Western communities,” said NCBA Executive Director of Natural Resources and PLC Executive Director Kaitlynn Glover. “The BLM is an important partner to ranchers across the West, and it is our expectation that Director Stone-Manning uphold the law, support multiple use management, and recognize the important role ranchers play in managing and conserving these large landscapes.”
