Speak Out for Sound Management of BLM Lands

The US Senate will soon be voting on whether to block the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) “Planning 2.0 Rule” – and our Senators need to hear your voice as an angler who values our public lands!  BLM properties in Colorado include some of our most outstanding fisheries like the Colorado River and the Gunnison Gorge, as well as important native trout habitats – and sound planning and management of these lands if essential.

Speak out for sound management of BLM lands!

This new rule updates the BLM’s outdated rule and gives the public a stronger voice in public land management decisions. The revised rule will increase agency transparency and opportunities for public involvement in federal land planning, and ensure that important fish and wildlife habitats and looked at up front and at a landscape level, not left as an afterthought.confluence-of-the-thompson-creeks-in-foreground-canyon

Trout Unlimited and our partners in the hunting and fishing community have supported Planning 2.0, but this common-sense proposal is under threat of being repealed by Congress using the Congressional Review Act which would not only block the rule but prevent anything substantially like it being adopted in the future.

Please take a few minutes to contact Colorado’s Senators and urge them to oppose efforts to do away with Planning 2.0, to ensure that the public has a voice in public land management!
