April 27, 2021
Press Release

Yesterday, Congressman Andy Biggs and Congresswoman Lauren Boebert led a letter to Senate leaders cosigned by seven additional House Members opposing the confirmation of National Wildlife Federation senior advisor Tracy Stone-Manning to serve as the director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), which is currently headquartered in Grand Junction, Colorado.  Representatives Biggs and Boebert offered the following statements:

Another far-Left appointee is about to take over an agency that administers over a tenth of the territory of the United States. If Ms. Stone-Manning is confirmed, she will reimpose new regulations on the energy sector and may even move BLM’s headquarters back to D.C. She will allow BLM to fall under the sway of Washington bureaucrats. Her appointment will compromise our nation's energy future. Surely our Senators will take the rational approach and reject Ms. Stone-Manning’s radical vision.”  -- Congressman Andy Biggs 

“I have serious concerns about this nomination and the partisan hacks filling senior positions within the Biden administration. Ms. Stone-Manning has an extreme record opposing issues that are important to the West and the people in my communities. Her opposition to the Bureau of Land Management Headquarters move as well responsible oil and gas development that creates good-paying jobs and has helped reduce carbon emissions significantly is of concern.” -- Congresswoman Lauren Boebert

Additional cosigners: Rep. Ken Buck (CO-04), Rep. Doug LaMalfa (CA-01), Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-04), Rep. Scott Perry (PA-10), Rep. Debbie Lesko (AZ-08), Rep. Madison Cawthorn (NC-11), and Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01)
