President Joe Biden isn’t one to let a silly little thing like the law get in the way of his extreme agenda.

Now a Republican U.S. Senator is vowing to fight Biden “turning federal law on its head.”

Because President Joe Biden and BLM are teaming up to restrict Americans’ access to a critical resource.

The other BLM

President Joe Biden’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has oversight over more than 615-Million acres of land in the United States, according to the U.S. Congressional Research Service.

To put that in perspective, that’s more than a quarter of the land in the entire country.

BLM governs 80% of land in Nevada, more than 60% in both Idaho and Utah, more than half of Oregon, nearly half of Wyoming and California and has control over some portion of land in every state in America.

President Biden’s Interior Secretary Deb Haaland has proposed a new rule for multi-use BLM land that would make “non-use” a “use.”

The Left’s always moving the goalposts

In other words, the White House wants to restrict all public access to land the BLM deems “conservation” land.

It’s a gift to the environmental-extremist organizations that helped Biden get elected.

If the new rule is implemented, groups will be able to lease the land from the BLM and then do nothing with it.

And it comes at the expense of American families – largely in the Mountain West area of the country – who use that land for both work and play.

Americans will no longer be able to use the public land for energy production, critical mineral development, grazing, forest management, and recreation.

Instead that land will sit idle and be used in fundraising marketing for environmental groups.

The Biden administration knows the BLM rule will impact energy costs

Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming is fit to be tied over the radical change from Biden’s Interior Department and BLM.

“Multiple-use is the decades-old, bedrock principle of federal land management,” said Barrasso. “She (Sec. Haaland) is calling up – down, day – night, black – white – turning federal law on its head. The Secretary is giving radicals a new tool to shut out the public. Remember, environmental radicals don’t want the public to have access to public lands.”

There is still time to stop the rule from going into effect.

There will be a 75-day comment period once the draft of the rule is published in the Federal Register, which likely won’t be until next year.

Sen. Barrasso plans to put that time to good use.

“In the 1980s extremists used tree spikes to try and stop responsible management of public lands,” Barrasso said. “In 2023 they use decrees from Washington. Wyoming families depend on access to public lands. The Biden administration’s extreme unilateral action will kill multiple use. This is a clear violation of the law. I will do everything in my power to stop this proposal.”
