Washington, D.C. – Idaho’s congressional delegation applauded the collaborative effort of Acting Secretary of the Interior David Bernhardt on the Record of Decision (ROD) for the amended land use plans that better align the Bureau of Land Management plans with the State of Idaho aimed at Greater Sage-Grouse conservation.

“The Department of Interior’s decision announced today to better align Bureau of Land Management plans for habitat protection of sage grouse with state conservation strategies is grounded in good science and practical considerations,” said Senator Mike Crapo. “Key elements in this resolution include a commitment to work with all relevant stakeholders, adaptive management that reflects inevitable changes in on-the-ground conditions, and respect for state and local economic considerations. This approach will have greater public support and participation and a more beneficial outcome for sage grouse and its habitat.
