County officials in western Colorado have regularly lambasted Planning 2.0 and this week, Garfield County joined in with five other counties in the western United States considering suing to halt the rule, which they have criticized as a central-planning measure.
The BLM this month announced that the rule was final and on Monday, Garfield County agreed to spend as much as $40,000 with the Texas-based property-rights organization, the American Stewards of Liberty, to halt it.
While Garfield County is taking an active role, Mesa County officials are looking to Congress and a Republican administration under President-elect Donald Trump to deal with the new rule.
Im hopeful the new administration will push back on regulations that have been introduced in recent weeks and months, said Mesa County Commission Chairwoman Rose Pugliese.
People dont realize how much power is being taken away from local field offices under the new planning rule, Pugliese said.
American Stewards of Liberty has worked with Garfield County previously on its efforts to deal with the BLMs land-management plans aimed at preventing the listing of the greater sage grouse as endangered.

I am of the opinion that the federal government ownership of any lands within a single state should be limited to no more than 20% of the total acreage of the state. Any excess lands should be returned to the state.
Nothing prevents a Republican controlled Congress from selling any or all federal land to the states or individuals.
Not only land use, and water, too :
the Forest Service is endangering the Town of Tombstone’s supply of safe drinking water and ability to fight fires by cutting off the famous citys access to the mountain springs that has provided the desert town with water since the 1880s.
Can’t these Sheriffs throw the bums out?
