NCBA, PLC Encouraged by Secretary Zinke's Order on 'Sue and Settle'

13 September 2018

US - Yesterday, it was reported that the Department of Interior announced Secretarial Order 3368, regarding "sue and settle".

Ethan Lane, Executive Director of the Public Lands Council and NCBA Federal Lands, issued a response to the announcement, saying: "Ranchers operating on public land are subjected to relentless, coordinated litigation designed to force settlements with the Department of the Interior.

"These actions waste taxpayer dollars, divert precious resources away from conservation efforts, and jeopardize the livelihoods of America’s food and fiber producers.

"Secretary Zinke should be commended for this common-sense decision, which will shed some light on these bad actors and their unsavory tactics."
