CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-WY) sent a letter to President Joe Biden yesterday that outlined the reasons why Tracy Stone-Manning is not the right person to serve as the Director of the Bureau of Land Management and called on him to withdraw her nomination. 

The letter cites several examples of Stone-Manning’s past policy positions and actions that make her unfit to lead the Bureau, including her comments critical of multiple use, her support for penalizing the energy industry, her efforts to withdraw the Lewiston and Missoula BLM Resource Management Plans, her opposition to the sage-grouse final environmental impact statements, and her involvement in a tree-spiking incident that amounted to ecoterrorism.

Rep. Cheney concluded the letter by stating that Stone-Manning, “has proven she lacks the judgment and integrity to serve in such an important position. She is not the right person to lead our largest federal land agency, and Wyoming and the West deserve a better candidate. I urge you to immediately withdraw her nomination to serve as BLM Director.”
