Bishop Statement on Senate Passage of the CRA to Overturn BLM’s Planning 2.0 Rule

house nrWashington, D.C. – Today, the Senate passed H.J. Res. 44 (Rep. Liz Cheney, WY-at large), a joint resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act to repeal the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Planning 2.0 rule.
 
“This rule emboldened federal bureaucrats and placed special interests ahead of local communities and states in resource management decisions.

These communities need more say, not less,” Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) stated.

Bishop: Obama’s Midnight Fish and Wildlife Service Policy Sets Irresponsible Mitigation Standards

house nrWashington, D.C. (Nov 18, 2016) – Today, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released the final revised policy on mitigation impacts of development. Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) released the following statement:

“Up until the bitter end, this administration’s Fish and Wildlife Service is forcing damaging, last-minute edicts on their way out the door.  I have significant concerns that this ‘mitigation’ policy will only create more undue barriers to economic activity and infrastructure needs. It sets irresponsible mitigation standards. This rule won’t help the environment or the American people, but it will do wonders for the special-left interest and litigious groups that have Obama’s ear.”
