SO LONG! Public Lands Bureaucrats Are Quitting Because Trump Wants to Transfer the Agency out of DC to Colorado
The Trump government is preparing to proceed to the public lands management agency from Washington, DC into Colorado. It makes great sense since the great majority of public lands are west.
It is a fantastic strategic move too. Among the most effective methods to drain the swamp would be to decentralize federal agencies simply by getting them from the swamp.
Some workers are unhappy about this and are stopping instead of going to Colorado. It is nearly like what they truly care about is residing in DC, rather than public lands management.

Opponents warn of employees exodus as US divides lands agency
Opponents of this Trump government’s plan to split up the Washington, D.C., headquarters of the nation’s public lands agency are warning signals of a brain drain, stating many staffers that are being reassigned are choosing to stop instead of go out West.
U.S. Interior Secretary David Bernhardt defended the move Friday. Opponents have suggested that the amount of Bureau of Land Management staffers consenting to maneuver from headquarters might be as low as 15%, which Bernhardt stated was”not consistent with what I have seen.”
Talking at a Las Vegas convention on Colorado River water supplies, Bernhardt stated he didn’t instantly have firmer amounts, however.
“A year from today… you are likely to find out that it worked extremely well,” Bernhardt told reporters.
The Trump government claims that the strategy will save taxpayers hundreds of dollars, direct to better, quicker decisions and trimming a”top heavy” workplace in Washington. Transferring the agency from Washington is a long-cherished aim of Western country politicians that mention the preponderance of public lands within their portion of the nation and their lack of accessibility to decision-makers.
The deadline for the majority of staffers to inform the property agency, which is governed by the Interior Department, if they planned to proceed was Thursday. However, the agency hadn’t compiled a count on the number of staffers had agreed to relocate,” spokesman Derrick Henry stated.
Many conservatives are imagining the irony on Twitter:
All these Beltway bureaucrats adore the country’s public lands and people who utilize them so much that they do not wish to be anywhere near either of these. https://t.co/3CYvMzGBZL

Makes perfect sense. Virtually all the BLM property is at the west. Management needs to improve. Or they ought to flip it over to the countries. https://t.co/V1oFlPNEQ5

A number of those bureaucrats are in DC for its cocktail parties and being close to the levers of power. When they don’t need to maintain their tasks by visiting Colorado, that is alright.
Colorado has a population of nearly 6 million people, a lot of whom are happy to fulfill these positions.
