Washington, DC-- The Bush administration proposal to alter the rules 
governing livestock grazing on public lands threatens to overturn efforts to improve 
rangeland conditions and reduce the impacts of grazing on watersheds, wildlife, 
and cultural treasures. The Bureau of Land Management is holding a public 
hearing on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed rules today 
in Washington, D.C. 
“If the proposed rule is allowed to go into effect, poor grazing practices 
will likely be allowed to continue unchecked, and natural resources, wildlife, 
and recreation will take a back seat to grazing again dominating BLM lands,” 
said Randy Moorman of Earthjustice. “Even the draft EIS released in January on 
the proposed rule changes conceded that rangeland health might suffer during 
the transition to the new rules.”
