Federal lands executive wants to streamline regulations

Speaking of the EIS’s final route through our nation’s capital, we recently had the opportunity to meet the Department of Interior’s acting assistant secretary for land and minerals management and discuss the EIS and, more broadly, energy development on BLM land.


Kate MacGregor was recently hosted by the Grand Junction Petroleum and Mining Club to give a talk on the Department of Interior’s role in expanding energy development. She emphasized that the Trump Administration is very serious about streamlining permitting and reducing regulatory burdens.


That message was further stressed later in her visit when she met with a handful of regional industry leaders, including Enefit, where we had the opportunity to discuss the long journey of our EIS with her one-on-one. We want to thank Kate for her commitment towards much needed improvements in the federal bureaucracy!
