The Bureau of Land Managment announced earlier this year that the agency's headquarters would move from Washington D.C. to Grand Junction, Colo. Proponents of the move believe this will make the agency more efficient, since most of the land the BLM manages is West of the Mississippi. But critics say the move will give preferential treatment to the fossil fuel industry. Mountain West News Bureau reporter Noah Glick talks to Idaho Matters about the controversial change.
