State Ranchers Like New Grazing Rules

Laramie, Wy – Wyoming ranchers say the new federal regulations for grazing on public lands will provide incentives for ranchers to improve land and give them time to make improvements. B-L-M Deputy Director Jim Hughes hopes it will encourage better practices on public land while not putting to many controls on ranchers. He says if people have concerns the public will have ample opportunity to comment. But conservation groups are expressing concerns and one group has filed a lawsuit to stop the new rules.
