Support Collaboratively Developed Public Lands Legislation Instead of Top Down National Monument Designations!

Take Action to Encourage the Administration to Support the Utah Public Lands Initiative and Other Collaboratively Developed Land Use Bills and Avoid Massive and Inappropriate Monument Designations!

On Wednesday, January 20, House Natural Resources Committee Chairman Rob Bishop (R-UT) and Rep Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) unveiled the first draft of the Utah Public Lands Initiative. This release follows three years, 1,200 meetings and consideration of 65 detailed proposals. This draft is intended to be just that – a draft. Comments, suggestions and recommendations will continue to be accepted and considered by the bill sponsors. The draft represents a compromise that includes many important provisions that boost recreation, land conservation, economic development, and certainty in eastern Utah communities. Please visit www.UtahPLI.com to view the draft language, maps, and other summaries regarding the draft Utah PLI Act. 

The release of the draft provides a great opportunity for all ARRA members to remind the Administration that truly collaborative public lands management processes take time, commitment and dedication. Too often the Administration seems willing to hold a public meeting or two in an area then designate a massive swath of nearby public lands as a National Monument and all but eliminate the opportunity for meaningful local public involvement. The Utah Public Lands Initiative serves as a shining example of collaboration, hard work and compromise.

Send an email encouraging the President and Interior Secretary Sally Jewell to support the Utah Public Lands Initiative and other collaboratively developed land use bills that allow for meaningful public involvement as opposed to creating new National Monuments that do not have widespread support.

BLM's proposed planning rule now available

Dear interested public,Thank you for participating in the early stages of our Planning 2.0 effort to help us improve the way the BLM prepares its Resource Management Plans. We thought you’d like to know that the BLM’s proposed planning rule is now available for public review on the BLM Web site. The proposed rule is informed by the input we heard from you during our initial public outreach and applies our lessons learned over the last 40 years of land use planning under the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA). The new approach will make future land-use planning more collaborative, transparent, and effective. The changes will increase opportunities for early engagement by state and local government, Tribes and other stakeholders in BLM’s land-use decision-making while adopting a broader landscape-scale approach to managing public lands and incorporate modern technology into the agency’s planning process.The BLM will be scheduling a public meeting and a webinar to provide an overview of the proposed regulation changes along with a question and answer session which will be announced separately. We will also be conducting tribal consultation on this issue.

To access the proposed rule, please visit www.blm.gov/plan2. 

A video featuring Secretary Jewell inviting public participation in the revision process is available at this link.
