Cheney planning 2.0 disapproval resolution passes U.S. Senate


Congressman Liz Cheney (WY-AL) released the following statement after the U.S. Senate passed the disapproval resolution to overturn the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Resource Management Rule, which is commonly called “Planning 2.0”.

“I am very pleased the Senate voted today to overturn BLM Planning 2.0. Planning 2.0 was a misguided and damaging attempt by the Obama administration to undermine the rights of state and local governments to manage resources and land use inside their own communities.” Congressman Cheney said, "I was honored to introduce the bill repealing 2.0 in the House, and welcome its passage today in the Senate.”


The Bill reads: Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress disapproves the rule submitted by the Bureau of Land Management of the Department of the Interior relating to ‘‘Resource Management Planning’’ (published at 81 Fed. Reg. 89580 (December 12, 2016), and such rule shall have no force or effect.

The nullification of Planning 2.0 has been supported by a wide range of western organizations, including: the Wyoming Association of Conservation Districts, Wyoming County Commissioners Association, Wyoming Farm Bureau Federation, Wyoming Stock Growers Association, the Wyoming Wool Growers Association, Petroleum Association of Wyoming and Wyoming Governor Matt Mead among others.
