ABSTRACT
The article discusses the planned revision of the resource management plan for the Vermillion Basin in Moffat County, Colorado by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM). It reveals that the agency wants to close the Vermillion Basin from oil and gas development. According to BLM spokesman David Boyd, the final plan will include the prevention of leasing in Vermillion, protection of sage grouse habitat and provisions for non-producing oil and gas leases to expire after 10 years. However, it is noted that the local government is against the move considering the amount of revenue it can get from development of the basin.
