Daines Statement on Biden Admin’s Approval of American Prairie’s Bison Grazing Request

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today released the following statement after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced their decision to approve American Prairie Reserve’s proposal to allow bison grazing in Phillips County, Montana.  

“This is yet another example of the Biden administration ignoring local input from Montana ranchers—it’s completely unreasonable. At a time when our farmers and ranchers are facing unprecedented challenges, we should be listening to our Montana farmers and ranchers not pushing them to the side. In the coming weeks I’ll be working closely with Governor Gianforte to work through this decision in a way that works for Montana ranchers and communities,” Daines said.
