BLM’s Law Enforcement Powers to be abolished in New Legislation

Tim Brown / March 27, 2016

Following all of the attention over the past couple of years regarding the abusive nature of the Bureau of Land Management and the controversy over land that has been unconstitutionally grabbed by the DC government, things are finally coming to a head. Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) has put forth a piece of legislation that would “terminate the law enforcement functions of the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management and to provide block grants to States for the enforcement of Federal law on Federal land under the jurisdiction of these agencies, and for other purposes.”

HR 4751 is titled “Local Enforcement for Local Lands Act.” The bill does the following:

Terminates the law enforcement function within BLM and Forest Service.

Provides block granted funding to local law enforcement.

Deputizes local law enforcement to defend federal land.

Establishes a formula to reimburse local governments for law enforcement on public lands based on the percentage of public land in each state.

Restores responsibility for law enforcement to elected officials who are accountable to the local community.

Yes, there are too many government agencies getting police powers now.  BLM is not going to like giving that up and their power taken away.   My guess is a lot of, if not all of that power, came from rule changes within the BLM itself.  (BTW, these changes have to be published in the Federal Register.)  Guns, ammo, training and manpower cost a lot of money. They must have also gotten budget increases along the way to enable them to do this. Time to poke a pin in these people and release the bloat. They don't need to be policing people, their job is to manage land that is owned by the PEOPLE.  They are doing a terrible job of that, too.  Kick them all out and start over.
