DENVER - Gov. Polis released the following statement regarding the Bureau of Land Management’s decision to move their headquarters to Colorado.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Bureau of Land Management and their employees to the great state of Colorado. As I stated to Secretary Bernhardt many times, Grand Junction is the perfect location for the BLM because of community support, location closer to the land BLM manages, and the positive impact it will have on our western Colorado economy,” said Governor Jared Polis. “Hard to think of a better place to house the department responsible for overseeing our beloved public lands.”
