BLM’s Planning 2.0 Rule and New Federal Lands Grazing Fees Addressed at Cattle Industry Convention



NASHVILLE, TN (February 2, 2017) – The Public Lands Council and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association applaud the introduction of concurrent resolutions in both the Senate and House disapproving the Bureau of Land Management’s Planning 2.0 rule finalized last December. The resolutions, introduced by Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairwoman Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) respectively, would reverse damage done in the final hours of the Obama administration. 


Meanwhile, both organizations were pleased to hear the 2017 federal grazing fee was going to be less then 2016.


In Nashville at the Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show, the Northern Ag Network’s Russell Nemetz talked with Ethan Lane, the Executive Director of the PLC and NCBA Federal Lands.
