Senator: BLM ‘overreaching’


US Senator Dean Heller (R-NV) issues a statement expressing his “great disappointment with the way that this situation is being handled.” Heller says he told BLM director Neil Kornze “very clearly that law-abiding Nevadans must not be penalized by an over-reaching BLM” and adds:

I remain extremely concerned about the size of this closure and disruptions with access to roads, water and electrical infrastructure. I will continue to closely monitor this situation, and urge the BLM to make the necessary changes in order to preserve Nevadans’ constitutional rights.
