Chairwoman Tammy Pearson held a public lands committee call on Friday July 6th. Some of the important updates from the call include:
- Utah counties have proposed 3 platform amendments and 5 resolutions related to public lands. Those proposals will be voted on at the upcoming NACo conference. Please support Utah’s proposals in Nashville.
- Tammy is working with PLPCO to address conflicts between counties and the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources. If you have conflicts in your county, please send a description to Celeste Maloy so she can add them to the list for Tammy’s conversations with state officials.
- The BLM is accepting public comments right now on the new plan to manage wild horses. UAC will be submitting comments. In addition, UAC will write up a couple of different comments that individual counties can use as templates to send in their own comments.
The next public lands committee call will be July 20th at 8 am. If you have any agenda items you would like to add, please contact Tammy Pearson or Celeste Maloy.
