NPCA lays out litany of concerns about Zinke’s DOI reorganization

A low resolution map of the United States, unclear goals, lack of public input, and mixing agencies with different missions and approaches to land management are among the concerns cited by the National Parks Conservation Association in comments it provided on a proposed reorganizaton of the Interior Department by Secretary Ryan Zinke, who seems in a rush to complete the task.

The Interior secretary is proposing to divide the country into 13 watersheds, and reorganize his various agencies -- the National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Surface Mining Reclamation and Enforcement, U.S. Geological Survey, Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management -- in some fashion to manage the resources in those watersheds.
