“Public Lands: BLM Plans Revamp Of Grazing Regulations”

“The Bureau of Land Management is preparing to overhaul grazing regulations, including how it addresses scofflaw ranchers on public lands.

In a notice to be included in tomorrow's Federal Register, the land management agency announced it is preparing an environmental impact statement on proposed updates to grazing rules.

According to BLM, the newest updates will address grazing permit procedures and land use planning, as well as how best to use grazing to address and reduce wildlife risks.

The proposed changes also focus on “strengthening controls to prevent unauthorized grazing.””
