Utah guv hails President Trump's repeal of BLM land-planning reforms

Gov. Gary Herbert met briefly Monday with President Donald Trump at the White House during the signing of a bill repealing federal-land planning reforms opposed by Utah political leaders and extractive industries.

At the end of the Obama administration, the Bureau of Land Management implemented so-called BLM Planning 2.0 to give a landscape-scale perspective in resource plans, but critics blasted it for giving "radical special interests" equal footing with local officials.

"We want to optimize the management, the outcome, the results of our public lands and multiple use, particularly under the BLM, which of course is the biggest landowner in Utah. Forty-two percent of the land is controlled by the BLM," Herbert said in a conference call with reporters.

The signing ceremony took place in the White House's Roosevelt Room, where Trump joked about the small size of the desk he used to sign four bills rolling back regulations implemented by his predecessor.
