Bishop Welcomes Neil Kornze as BLM Director
WASHINGTON— Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01), Chairman of the House Public Lands and Environmental Regulation Subcommittee, today released a statement regarding President Barack Obama’s official nomination of Neil Kornze as Director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Kornze has been serving as Interim Director since the departure of Director Mike Pool.
“I enjoyed working with Director Pool and found him to be responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. I was disappointed to see him leave the BLM and hope to have a similar working relationship with Mr. Kornze. I have heard some very good things about him from people I respect. I look forward to working with him on matters concerning Utah and our nation’s public lands and hope he will be open-minded about the importance of multiple use.”
