Rep. Boebert Leads Effort to Ensure BLM Headquarters Remains in Grand Junction

January 3, 2021

Rifle, CO - Today, U.S. Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (CO-03) released the following statement after leading an effort to ensure the Bureau of Land Management’s headquarters remains in Grand Junction, Colorado.

“Moving the BLM Headquarters to Grand Junction was a game changer for the West and local communities. People from nearby states that would have never traveled to Washington D.C. for a meeting have already found their way to Grand Junction including sheriffs, ranchers, and county commissioners. Customer service has improved, better decisions are being made in the field and taxpayers will save millions of dollars annually. What’s not to like?

“It only makes sense to have the people managing hundreds of millions of acres of land located near that land and accessible to those communities. The Bureau of Land Management’s move West is a win for all Americans. I urge the Biden administration to work with the bipartisan Colorado delegation and other Members of Congress that support keeping the headquarters in Grand Junction to ensure it continues to be a success.”
