Natural Resources: Defense and Interior Can Better Manage Land Withdrawn for Military Use
GENERAL ACCOUNTING OFFICE WASHINGTON DC NATIONAL SECURITY AND INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS DIV
Pagination or Media Count:
The law defines how DoD and the Department of the Interior agencies are to operate in managing the resources of lands controlled by the military. Military needs have priority over resource management. DoD is authorized to establish military uses on the lands without consulting with Interior, and Interiors resource management activities require DoD concurrence. The law requires Interior to develop a resource management plan after consultation with DoD. It also requires both Interior and DoD to enter into an agreement to implement the resource management plans. Interiors Bureau of Land Management BLM has primary resource management responsibilities at all six sites. Another Interior agency, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service FWS, manages two national wildlife refuges that have airspace under military control Goldwater Range in Arizona and the Nellis Range complex in Nevada
