Update: A federal judge has ruled that William Perry Pendley has been serving unlawfully and cannot continue in his role at the Bureau of Land Management. It is now even more vital that Secretary Bernhardt name an acting director for the Bureau.

This summer, President Trump withdrew his nomination of William Perry Pendley to lead the Bureau of Land Management... But Interior Secretary David Bernhardt said that Pendley will continue "exercising the authority" of the Director of the Bureau.

That's unacceptable. Pendley was too controversial for the Senate to consider or the president to support. Bernhardt needs to replace Pendley immediately with a competent, non-controversial acting director.

Take action now and tell Secretary Bernhardt: Public lands need real leadership. Name a new acting director for the Bureau of Land Management right away!

Name an acting director for the Bureau of Land Management

Dear Secretary Bernhardt,

Along with park lovers everywhere, I urge you to immediately name a new acting director for the Bureau of Land Management. Now that President Trump has withdrawn William Perry Pendley's nomination, Pendley should no longer continue "exercising the authority" of the director.



Please immediately name a new acting director for the Bureau of Land Management, then work with the President and the Senate to find a consensus nominee to lead the Bureau.

Thank you for your considering my views,
