    Texas Wins Victory for Farmers Against BLM

    by Bob Price - 8 Apr 2017 - Wichita Falls, TX ... chers-blm/

    Texas leaders and farm owners secured a victory in the battle against the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) attempted land grab along the banks of the Red River. The federal agency announced it is suspending the surveys ordered during the Obama Administration to justify the attempted takeover of 90,000 acres of land.

    The BLM admitted this week admitted in a letter issued on March 29 (attached below) that it used an “incorrect methodology†in its justification for the attempted taking of land that had been in the possession of many Texas landowners for generations. “Having reviewed this deposition testimony and other new information, the BLM believes the survey methodology was used in error and may have caused errors in identifying the location of the Gradient Boundary,†Acting Cadastral Survey Chief Stephen Beyerlein wrote in the letter.

    Reading the title to this, you had me wondering what BLM group it was.

    Blame or credit this policy change on Zinke.
