BLM Wyoming office gets nearly $23 million


CHEYENNE - The Bureau of Land Management's Wyoming office will receive about $23 million in federal stimulus money.

The money will be used for various projects that include improving facilities, roads and sage grouse habitat on BLM administered land in the state.

The money for Wyoming is part of more than $300 million in federal stimulus money the BLM is planning to use for some 650 projects nationwide.

BLM spokeswoman Cindy Wertz says most of the money for Wyoming is going for deferred maintenance projects.

The BLM manages about 18 million acres of public lands and resources in Wyoming.
