  • BLM Headquarters is coming out west.
  • Boise State political clubs discuss diversity.

- Earlier this year, the Bureau of Land Management announced that it would be moving its headquarters from Washington D.C. to Colorado. The goal is to make it easier for the agency to manage its land, with the majority of it west of the Mississippi River. However, there are many critics of the move and 11 BLM staffers have quit over the move. Mountain West News Bureau reporter Noah Glick joins Idaho Matters to discuss the move and its effects both good and bad.

- In July, a group of Republican lawmakers in Idaho sent a letter to Boise State President Marlene Tromp criticizing the university's diversity initiatives. Now, two of Boise State's student-run political clubs are hosting a bipartisan event featuring four lawmakers to try and find a common ground between Democrats and Republicans. Idaho Matters talks to event leaders about what they hope to accomplish at the event.
