Updated: Jul 22, 2019
Washington, D.C. – United States Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), the chief architect of the plan to move the Bureau of Land Management’s headquarters to Grand Junction, shared a letter from the Department of Interior today revealing more details about the Bureau of Land Management’s headquarters relocating to Grand Junction, Colorado. Gardner’s steadfast commitment to his proposal, along with public legislative action and behind-the-scenes work with key Administration officials, is the reason the BLM’s new home will be in Colorado.
“I am thrilled that the Bureau of Land Management and its senior leadership will be relocating to Grand Junction,” said Senator Gardner. “This is a smart decision that transcends political parties and will generate a positive economic ripple effect through the state of Colorado. I commend the Department of Interior for relocating the Agency closer to the people it serves and the public lands it manages. Government is best when it is closer and more accountable to the American people, and relocating the directorate of the BLM to Western Colorado will ensure our public lands are protected for many future generations to enjoy.”
