The Bureau of Land Management, Gov. Matt Mead and the State Historic Preservation Office recently signed a revised agreement outlining how the state and federal government consults to manage cultural resources.

Federal law requires the BLM to consult with the State Historic Preservation Office about how a project will affect archaeological and historic sites on public land.

The revised protocol brings more clarity and consistency to how the consultation process occurs, and provides for increased participation from American Indian tribes and the public, according to a release from the state.

    Isn't the BLM part of the federal government which Mead doesn't trust to live up to promises that they make to the states?

    Has this ever been put out for public comment before signing. On face value it looks innocent enough. The devil is in the details. Are there binding regulations that will come back to bite us. I hope this was run by a lot of folks that know the ins and outs of what the BLM is up to.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. This is a forum for community discussion, and we'd rather address your concerns directly. It would be better to write the editors at, or call Editor Mandy Burton at 307-266-0545.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't, or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime, or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
