    Don't be surprised if the process ends abruptly because there is no more BLM Ranger job. This is a strange time for DOI LE... anti-DOI LE forces are aligning right now in a way that has never happened before. Read the tea leaves: a republican congress... a populist president who appeals to the patriot/alt right community.... a DOI Sec who is local control oriented.... on and on. The recent pardon and release of convicted public lands arsonists Dwight and Steve Hammond is a harbinger of things to come.

    Removing LE authority from DOI agencies (and USFS) in a broad sweep is not a new idea. Attempts were made in the 1980s and early 1990s. But the sands have shifted in a big way and the only thing endangered about the Endangered Species Act right now is the act itself. Look for it to happen quietly too- an innocuous sounding rider attached to a larger bill, something like the "National Public Lands LE Improvement Act" will be attached to the 2019 Food Stamp and Farm Bill Reauthorization. That's how these things are done.

    So you might want to consider if DOI is the best option right now, because 18 months from now, DOI badges may be melted into paper weights and the jurisdiction over public lands is ceded to states and counties....



    SALT LAKE CITY — Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, wants to rein in the law enforcement authority of the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service and is crafting legislation he says will either restrict or abolish their authority.

    Lee said Monday he aims to hem in powers he says were never envisioned under the Federal Land Management Policy Act of 1976.

    "Our federal land management agencies have drifted far from their intended purposes," he said. "The BLM has expanded its operations far from public lands."

    Lee, chairman of the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Public Lands, Forests and Mining, convened a hearing earlier this month on the issue, querying top agency officials about the role their law enforcement plays on federal lands, and if that could be fulfilled by local sheriff deputies.

      Scary days ahead for land management LE. Hoping for a more friendly administration/Congress toward us come November.

        There's an old saying about that.... 'you can hope in one hand and poop in the other. See which one fills up first.'

          I'm guessing if you were hired for the position, you are still on the BI process that will take you into 2020 maybe 21 year. That's only BLM. All the other fed gigs seem to move pretty quick.
