Congressman Mark Amodei tangles with the BLM

Listen
AIR DATE: March 19, 2012

Northern Nevada Congressman Mark Amodei has a love-hate relationship going with the Bureau of Land Management right now. He has attacked its limits on oil and gas exploration to preserve the habitat of the sage grouse. But by the same token, he's happy that the BLM is pushing Congress to make 26,000 acres in the Pine Forest Range a federally-protected wilderness. We talk with the Congressman about his criticism and his re-election plans.
