BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT (BLM) DIRECTOR
Nominated by President Joe Biden
Tracy Stone-Manning is President Biden’s pick to Direct the Bureau of Land Management within the Department of Interior. She is a devoted steward of public lands, having worked for 3 years as senior adviser for conservation policy at the National Wildlife Fund. A native Montanan and climate visionary, Stone-Manning will play a key role in uplifting President Biden’s bold environmental agenda as a member of his Cabinet and a protector of public lands. Having worked on public lands under two Montana governors, Tracy Stone-Manning understands the real world implications of harmful extraction and pollution on public lands, and how important it is to put communities before corporate polluters in order to protect public health and the climate.
As head of the Bureau of Land Management, Stone-Manning will oversee the onshore oil and gas leasing process on federal lands. President Biden has already made his policy goals for public lands clear, having issued a pause on all new oil & gas permits in one of his earliest executive orders.
In the role of Director of the Bureau of Land Management, Tracy Stone-Manning will work directly under Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland, a historic appointment with a far-reaching vision for protecting public lands, air and water, and the climate.
