Zinke knows the power of the ag economy and has been a fighter for Montana ag since day one. Whether fighting for fair trade practices, against Waters of the U.S., or to restore crop insurance, Zinke is working hard for Montana ag in Congress.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Last week, Congressman Ryan Zinke led fourteen of his House colleagues to strongly urge the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to increase opportunities for local input in critical land management decisions. In a letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, Members emphasized how problematic Washington, DC’s “one-size-fits-all” approach has been on states with expansive federal land reserves. The agency has consistently removed control and consideration from local communities, thereby failing to manage its assets effectively.
