The Trump administration implemented dramatic changes to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), including shipping many of its employees from the longtime D.C. office to Grand Junction, Colorado. Policy shifts have also included moving away from conservation and loosening restrictions on treatment of public lands.

Leadership of the agency has also been in flux, as the temporary appointment of acting director William Perry Pendley was ruled to be in violation of federal laws.

Rebecca Beitsch of the Hill covers the BLM, and The Show spoke with her about what could be next.
