According to an article by Media Trackers posted on the Flint Report, big-money environmental groups, with the backing of billionaire activists, have been busy influencing the Montana BLM on land management policy.
Memos obtained by Media Trackers from the heads of several Montana “green” groups sent to the BLM during the agency’s public input period in 2013, show that many proposals in the new HiLine District plan are ideas which have been actively promoted by these same environmentalist groups.
