SALT LAKE CITY (Feb. 9, 2018) – This morning, Gov. Gary R. Herbert met with Ryan Zinke,
Secretary of the Department of the Interior.
Their meeting focused on the Department of the Interior’s efforts to reduce and realign regions
for their department, with the aim to put decision makers closer to the states and their people.
The governor believes Utah would benefit from such changes, and hopes that such changes will
improve efficiency and good communication when it comes to public lands decisions that matter
to Utahns. He released the following statement:
The Department of the Interior’s plan to realign the regions in their department reflects
good old-fashioned common sense. Practical solutions like this can help restore trust
between the states and the federal government. I look forward to additional discussion
regarding this proposal with my fellow governors in Washington, D.C. at the National
Governors Association meetings later this month.
