PRESIDENT SIGNS BILL OPPOSING BLM’S PLANNING 2.0 RULE
President Donald Trump signed H.J.Res. 44 into law on March 27. The resolution would use the Congressional Review Act to block the implementation of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s Planning 2.0 rule.
U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) introduced H.J.Res. 44 on Jan. 30. It passed the U.S. House of Representatives with a vote of 234 – 186 on Feb. 7. The Senate voted 51-48 in support of the resolution on March 7.
The American Motorcyclist Association supported H.J.Res. 44, because of concerns that the Planning 2.0 rule’s focus on landscape-level management minimized input from local governments, public officials and private citizens. It also failed to address the economic impact and administrative costs of the proposed changes.
Thank you for taking action to voice your opinion on H.J.Res. 44.
