Top BLM Official Leaving Agency to Lead Utah Department of Natural Resources
Niels Hanson is the Public Lands Council's vice president from Rawlins, Wyoming and says he'll be missed.
"He's going to be sorely missed" said Hansen. "He was a real asset to the industry and to the public in general because he took his job very seriously. But, he has a lot of great people working for him so there's a lot of people in line there that hopefully they'll be looking at to pick a replacement from."
The Public Lands Council is urging the Trump Administration to fill the position as soon as possible.
