Sixty Day Pause 

President Biden and his administration have put in place a 60-day pause on new oiled gas leasing and permitting.  They have frozen the nearly finished BLM-BIA resource management plan amendment (RMPA) and environmental impact statement (EIS) work for the Greater Chaco-Farmington area. These are all excellent steps forward. More needs to be done. The Greater Chaco Landscape needs the permanent protection of a bill that passes both houses of Congress and is signed by President Biden. The All-Pueblo Council of Governors, the Pueblo of Acoma, and other Pueblos and Tribes have called for the protection of Greater Chaco for years. Now is the time to create this important and necessary protection for all future generations.

be strong, be safe, Carlan
