BLM and State Plan New Cooperation
Cheyenne, Wy – The Bureau of Land Management and the state announced an historic partnership today (Friday). The governor and the Wyoming director of the B-L-M say this will protect cultural and historic resources in the state. The change is that a B-L-M employee will now work in the State Historic and Preservation Office.
The person who oversees that office is Phil Noble. He says this also allows the two agencies to respond to requests for cultural and historic permits process from mineral development companies more quickly. He does admit it may not be the answer the companies want but they will get it in a more timely manner.
Noble says a more timely response is needed because the B-L-M is getting more and more permitting requests.
