A Lawsuit Seeks The Removal Of The Directors For Park Service And BLM
"A lawsuit filed today seeks the removal of the controversial acting directors for two federal agencies. The agencies are in charge of millions of acres of public land energy development and the country's national parks. Npr's Kirk siegler reports the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management Have Not had permanent Senate confirmed directors for the entire trump presidency. That's a violation of the Constitution which requires Senate oversight of these key positions according to a lawsuit filed by to Washington DC and Idaho based conservation groups. And they're just a freewheeling detouring around the constitution in allowing these lower level political appointees to be running a show Peter Jenkins is senior counsel for Public Employees Environmental Responsibility the overall pattern is to weaken the environmental bureaus and allow state interests in private extractive industry interest particularly in the case of Bureau land-management to be able to call the shots. This lawsuit is the latest to shine light on the trump administration's unprecedented use of acting agency. Heads but the group's suing have long been suspicious of William Perry pen-li in particular leading the B. M. His temporary appointment has been extended now five times since taking over the agency last summer. Penalty once advocated for transferring ownership of the very public lands. He now manages over two states and private interests but in a recent interview. Pen-li told me that is not part of president trump's agenda regardless of what I've said in the past the one thing is clear is I'm a marine. I understand how to follow. Orders follow orders in this case in a statement the trump administration called the lawsuit that seeks to oust penalty and David Vella the park service. Baseless and a distraction as the park service in particular is trying to safely reopen national parks during the corona virus. Pandemic Kirk Siegler. Npr News Boise.

Bureau of Land Management Defends Move to Oil-And-Gas Town in Colorado
"The idea had been floated for years but President. Trump is actually doing it is administration is moving the headquarters of the Bureau of land management the Federal Agency that oversees drilling mining and recreation on about a tenth of all land in the US. The agency's main foot main office is now in a traditional oil and gas town in Colorado. Npr's Kirk siegler reports the new headquarters a long way from Washington DC. Like nine thousand nine hundred miles to the small western Colorado City of Grand Junction here. It's impossible to ignore. You are surrounded by federal public. Land the towering Mesas Red Rock Canyons and the Colorado National Monument Lobby the Acting Director William Perry penalty caught flack after announcing the move because of the other tenants in this office building their Chevron upstairs and on the main floor right next to the BLM's new glass entryway Colorado's lead oil and gas lobbying firm. You can't help but notice when you walk in. This office is right next to the Colorado oil and gas the Kogo Office and I'm just thankful it's not a marijuana dispensary. There's no dearth of pot shops around here but the agency says it's also hard to find an office space where the industry doesn't have a presence. Grand Junction is surrounded by public lands. That produce a lot of oil and natural gas. You know frankly. Let's be real. The oil patch can always afford to fly to Washington and sit down with somebody in Washington. The people can't do it farmers and ranchers and people from small community and county commissioners in a crisp wight Western shirt and Black Bolo tie the six-foot-five pen-li says the General Services Administration found this space. I think the more important story is that were out here. Were in the local community and locals can come and see us and we're just a you know a short drive away from a lot of people who would never think of flying to Washington. Dc to sit down with the director for penalty. This move is about decentralizing the US government the seventy four year old attorney spent most of his career at the Conservative Mountain states legal foundation re challenged the BLM in cases representing miners ranchers and recently Utah counties who fought bears. Ears National Monument. Some Westerners have long complained that the agencies leaders in Washington are disconnected with rural resource dependent communities here in Grand Junction Mesa County. Commissioner Rose Puglisi pushed hard for the relocation we have great relationships with our local field offices but ultimately we've learned that the decisions are made in Washington DC where they don't really even know where Mesa County is or the impacts of their decisions on our economy. Puglisi is a Republican but there has been some bipartisan support in Colorado Anyway for the relocation in part because the government is moving higher paying leadership. Jobs out here but mostly. Democrats and many conservationists are fighting this. They lost a bid to strip funding for the move but they did convince the Government Accountability Office to launch an inquiry. A lot of people come here like walk. Dogs defined right in activist and environmental filmmaker. Cody Perry is in. Bangs Canyon is a popular recreation site just to the edge of the Grand Junction sprawl. Is this public lands. That belongs to not just the people here in this county but all Americans he points out that the vast majority of BLM staff is already living and working full time in the rural west any worries that removing leaders from the halls of power and DC will turn the agency into a backwater. But he thinks that's by design. I think it's an absolute effort to undermine and dismantle an agency where essentially removing institutionalized knowledge that is being basically dismantled by industry actors. That's crazy talk. There's no other way to say back at the. Blm's still mostly empty offices near the city's Small Airport Acting Director William Perry pen-li says if anything the BIELEMA staffing up to carry out the administration's public land's agenda. Why in the world would we fire? People are dismantling agency this critical to accomplish your goals like energy independence like increasing recreational access like decreasing the likelihood of wildfires all across the West but for the third straight year. President trump has proposed. Cutting the agency's budget penalty hopes to have up to forty staff here by the end of March around the time that is temporary appointment. Expires Kirk Siegler.

High Avalanche Danger Out West Affects Transportation And Ski Areas
"To another story now. It's been a chaotic couple of weeks in the rocky mountains where large avalanches have closed highways ski resorts a single storm near Salt Lake City. It triggered a record forty eight slides as NPR's Kirk siegler reports. The increased avalanche risk comes at a time when more and more people are hitting the slopes in the high country. God probably Craggy Teton Mountains of North West Wyoming steep and deep Jackson hole is as a magnet for extreme skiers right. They're buddies goading them on on Matt Beauregard. And Rick lawler drop a fifteen foot cliff in this glade. Area called the tower three shits as just a melody honestly. You were just rep around rounded bounce. Skiing inbounds inside. The patrolled boundaries of the ski resort generally thought to be safer when it comes to avalanches. That's because all season skiers. I've been packing this snow down and stabilising it. But Matt Beauregard knows that's no guarantee we've actually triggered small slides on this exact face. They may duck a rope and ski ski out of bounds into the back country. But even here at the resort. They're wearing avalanche transceivers and safety gear. Just in case education's probably the most important thing. Rick here's wearing an air bag for added protection so in the case that he is stuck inside an avalanche you'll be able to pull this cord and hopefully float to the surface inbounds or in the back country. Avalanche danger is high across the mountain west. An unusually snowy early season followed by drought than dry powder. Storms then a punch of heavy wet snow last weekend in Utah. Today's storm dumped six and a half feet in Little Cottonwood Canyon home to the snowbird and Alta resorts awards and it ended up closing little cottonwood for fifty four hours and forty eight. Avalanches were reported one of those hit. The Road Mickey Champion is a forecaster here at the Utah Avalanche Center. She recorded wind speeds up to a hundred miles an hour on Ridge tops that further destabilize the already volatile snowpack in the Wasatch satch mountains. And then you put a big wrong heavy load or a wind load on top of that it just kind of upside down. It's like a pyramid when you take out the Baser Django when you remove one of the pieces says there were no fatalities reported in Utah. But last month skiers were buried and killed in avalanches within patrolled terrain at resorts in California and Idaho. Oh all of this is putting the round. The clock work. People tasked with keeping these mountains safe under the microscope Jackson Hole. Ski Patrol Director Drew Neilan stepping into his bindings above. You can't see it in the fog now. But there's a big cirque above us here and that's Casper Bowl. All and all that terrain is avalanche terrain every morning at dawn before the tram and the Gondolas Starts Spinning Army of Nielsen's patrol or detonating explosives lives to intentionally trigger slides. Now so skiers don't later and some of these can even be detonated remotely thanks to new robot like trolleys that reach even more dangerous surest remote places. Obviously we worry about avalanches coming down into the heavily congested areas. So that's one of our biggest concerns to get that work done early. Another big concern is simply that more. People are venturing out further into areas. They normally wouldn't have thanks to improved equipment. I think people assume that we're able that. We have the ability to completely eliminate the risk of avalanches within the scary. And that's just not the case but avalanche forecasters say along with the increased risk. It comes a new cachet becoming cool to say. You've taken avalanche courses and Dir as prepared as you can be Kirk Siegler N._p._R.. News Jackson Wyoming.

President Trump is threatening to cut off FEMA money to California communities that were devastated by the recent deadly wildfires. Trump tweeted that he's ordered FEMA to send no more money, unless California changes the way, it's forests are managed like most western states. The bulk of California's forests are actually federally owned and managed so it's not clear whether the government will follow through on the president's threat NPR's Kirk siegler is in Chico, California. That's where FEMA is helping people recover from the campfire those the most deadly and destructive in California history and Kirk I understand you're sending outside one of the agency's main disaster recovery aid centers. What are you seeing there? Well, there's a very big FEMA presence here. Audie, and it's a very busy recovery center. Even two months now after the campfire ignited, I'm told that on some days upwards of seven hundred people are still coming in. In and out of here. Fema has spent fifty four million dollars so far just since November. Here, you know, and this is going to critical programs like temporary housing assistance aid with rentals hotel vouchers FEMA is looking more to the long term to get a about two thousand trailers or mobile home units placed in some of them some fire victims have already been putting them in a town about forty minutes away from here. So this is very much still a very active recovery situation and FEMA has a large presence on the ground. So what are people in California saying about the president's threat? Well, people right here in Chico a lot of people don't have time to respond or speculate about what the president is claiming. He may do these are families in crisis living day to day. I just watched a group of folks get in out of the car their kids were still with them. It's clear that they don't have. They can't go to school right now. They don't have any housing more efficient. The new governor of California Gavin Newsom has strongly condemned. The president's tweets saying, he's playing games with people's lives, and that paradise shouldn't be victims of partisan bickering. If this were to happen. Simply put the consequences would be dire. These are people with you know, hardly any options are hundreds of people still sleeping in RV's out at the fairgrounds, assuming they were lucky enough to have an RV or one that didn't burn. And you know, I think there would also be a pretty big political fallout. If this were to happen. It's worth noting the two of the hardest hit counties and from California's wildfires of voted solidly four Trump in two thousand sixteen including the county that I'm talking to you from you mentioned partisan bickering. We should note that this whole conversation is separate from the partial government shutdown. Right. What do we know about how that's impacting things so far? Well, so far FEMA is telling me that there's no effect on the money in its programs here on the ground because the agency is considered an essential operation. But you know, there are some lesser profile things that are starting to worry local officials, especially if this drags on. I was at a paradise town council meeting last night. And in fact, we heard there that the town had been planning to apply for disaster recovery grants that they are really going to rely on in terms of planning and other things, but they can't right now because the department of commerce is mostly closed. I think you might continue to see the state of California step in win it can. But there is some concern here if this stalemate drags on. That's NPR's Kirk siegler reporting from Chico, California.

The Trump administration's trying to fast track and environmental review of projects that deliver. Federally subsidized water to farmers out. West NPR's, Kirk siegler reports a new presidential. Memorandum is designed to loosen environmental restrictions in west coast states, Republicans going back to the George W Bush administration have tried to increase water deliveries to farmers and California's massive central valley project where water from snow fed reservoirs gets pumped south to arid farmland. But those deliveries are perennially cut back due to attempts to protect endangered fish and drought. The president's order would speed up a current review of this as well as two other projects in Oregon and Washington, if environmental restrictions are loosened there will likely be. Prolonged legal battle one of the biggest champions of this latest plan is deputy interior secretary. David Bernhardt used to lobby for the Fresno based Westlands water district one of the largest and most influential water agencies in the west Kirk siegler, NPR news. This is NPR firm cake news, I'm Tiffany Cam. High. President Trump wants to see more water go to central valley farmers so much. So that he signed a memorandum saying that yesterday science reporter Lauren summer is here to explain all of this to us and Lauren the federal government has put states in charge of their own water. Does this memo tried to chip away at those states rights, and if not what does it do? Yeah. I mean, the reality is California is in charge of most of the decisions around water within our state borders, and that's based on a lot that goes back more than a century. There is one area though. And this is where it's. Get particularly messy where the federal government controls things and that has to do with them endangered species protections for salmon and delta smelt these two fish that are kind of caught up in these California water wars. So the federal government is now rewriting those protections. The memorandum from Trump basically said to speed up that process, and if that actually weakens protections for these endangered species it sets up a really big fight potentially. And that's because the state has its own endangered species acts of estate will want to see tough protections for these species. Even if the federal government weakens them. So the president was surrounded by a lot of Republican congress members from the central valley when he signed this a few of them are in races. That are tighter than expected. Is it a coincidence that this is coming so close to the election? There's a lot of speculation that no it was not a coincidence. I mean, you have people like Representative Jeff Denham from turlock his race is a lot tighter than maybe he expected. And a lot of them. Got this great photo op with the president signing something and they can go back to their constituents. Mostly farmers saying look what we did for you. Even though really this. Memorandum will probably have very little immediate impact for those farmers in terms of getting water that was Lauren summer, and I'm
