House votes to kill BLM Planning 2.0 Rule

From the Denver Post:

The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday voted to kill a federal rule that gives Americans more of a voice in large-scale planning for projects using public land. The action launched by House Republicans, including sponsors Rep. Scott Tipton of Colorado and Liz Cheney of Wyoming, would nullify the Bureau of Land Management’s “Planning 2.0” rule that took effect in December. That rule governs all planning for future uses of 250 million acres of federal public land that is concentrated in the West.

Last week, Congress killed the Stream Protection Act that required efforts to protect waterways near coal mines.

Folks, it’s time to fight. Send your donations to conservation organizations. Call lawmakers. Fight.
