U.S. Senator Cory Gardner announced yesterday that the Bureau of Land Management’s national headquarters will move to Grand Junction, Colorado. Gardner has argued for years to move the public lands agency’s top officials closer to the communities affected by their decisions. However, critics are calling this announcement little more than political theater. And later in the news, oil and gas lobby group Western Energy Alliance fundraises for maintenance projects at Canyonlands National Park. The group also intends to raise awareness about “Restore Our Parks” legislation which proposes to fund deferred maintenance projects at the nation’s parks with money generated from oil and gas royalties. Tune in.
