“Ex-BLM Chief Helping Transition That Might Reverse HQ Move”

“President-elect Joe Biden's transition team is tapping a former Obama-era Bureau of Land Management director to help reset the bureau's priorities under the new administration.

Neil Kornze, BLM's director during the last three years of President Obama's second term, is described by multiple sources as the “go-to guy” on all things BLM as the Biden administration is expected to make major organizational and policy changes at the federal government's largest landowner.

And almost everything is on the table during the transition — including moving BLM's headquarters back to Washington from its new location in Grand Junction, Colo., sources said.”
