It has been almost a year now since the Nevada Bundy debacle. A Minnesota congresswoman, McCollum pressed BLM Director, Kornze for an accounting of the illegalities committed by Bundy and others last year, during a hearing of the House Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee on BLM's $1.2 billion fiscal 2016 budget request.

Lawmaker calls Bundy supporters 'thugs,' urges BLM to seek justice

I liked the points that you cant mandate the agency to certain action and not approve the appropriations that allow them to do so, in this case, BLM's budget proposals to increase funding for sage grouse and its National Conservation Lands; to establish a new BLM charitable foundation that would leverage public support for its multiple use mission; and to collect about $48 million in new oil and gas inspection fees.
