(Reuters) - The White House on Thursday said it would nominate conservationist Tracy Stone-Manning as director of the Bureau of Land Management.

The BLM, a division of the Interior Department, manages more than a 10th of the nation's surface area, overseeing permitting for energy development, grazing, timber harvesting and recreation.

The position will be central to the Biden administration's effort to address climate change through management of public lands, including a current review of the federal oil and gas leasing program.

Stone-Manning most recently was the senior adviser for conservation policy at the National Wildlife Federation, where she advocated against the Trump administration's push to maximize fossil fuel production on public lands at the expense of other land uses.

1. I hope she has an aversion to all named Bundy

She can toss those free loaders off federal grazing lands.

6. First thing that came to my mind

This may prove to be a rough job since I expect the Bundys and Bundy-types are going to get bolder and try to trigger another "incident".

If horrible killing fire storms can be avoided..
