Wyoming Congresswoman and House GOP Conference Chair Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement on William Perry Pendley serving as Acting Director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM): 

“Perry Pendley’s experience dealing with public land issues and fighting for Wyoming makes him an excellent choice as Acting Director for the BLM. A Wyoming native, his past service—in uniform and during the Reagan Administration—exemplifies his devotion to this country and I know that he will put that commitment first in his new role. He has been a leader for decades on legal matters dealing with our land and resource issues.  I look forward to working with Perry and am confident that he will continue this Administration’s policies of rolling back burdensome federal regulation and preserving multiple use of our unparalleled public lands.”
