DENVER - From its headquarters in Washington, D.C., the U.S. Bureau of Land Management oversees some of the nation’s most prized natural resources: vast expanses of public lands. But most of that land is in the West, and some politicians are asking why the bureau’s headquarters isn’t in the West as well. Now they have a powerful ally in Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke. He is leading President Donald Trump’s charge to roll back environmental regulations and encourage energy development on public land. By Dan Elliott. SENT: 960 words. AP Photos.
