BLM Issues New Guidance For Managing Commercial Leases Along The Lower Colorado River

Your Government counsel.™

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) recently issued new guidance for the implementation and management of commercial leases for recreation related businesses along the Lower Colorado River.  The existing leases are on Bureau of Reclamation withdrawn lands which are managed by the BLM.  The BLM stated that the new guidance was necessary to ensure that appropriate statutory and regulatory authorities, in particular the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), are consistently used as they apply to the leases.  The guidance states that “all existing leases will be revised to comply with [FLPMA] at the time they are transferred, renewed or amended.”
