Mead finishes review of federal land plans, looks for consistency in sage-grouse protections

Governor Matt Mead submitted his comments, through the Governor’s consistency review, concerning land use revisions proposed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS). The BLM and USFS land use plans undergoing amendments or revisions cover most federal lands in the state and are expected to guide management on those lands for 20 or more years.  These plans include the Wyoming Greater Sage-Grouse Amendment (commonly referred to as “the 9 Plan”), Utah Greater Sage-Grouse Amendment, and Bighorn Basin and Buffalo Resource Management Plan Revisions.
