BLM lands are the object of huge amounts of recreational tourism dollars in western states. The local economies which depend on management of their regional BLM lands need to have input on their management. Not to mention the fact that many western states have 20 to 50 percent of local ranchers holding leases to ranch that BLM land. Only local governments have those ranchers interests at heart. Come on, when have Republicans EVER supported federal control over local control??
