BREAKING: Tracy Stone-Manning Confirmed as Director of Bureau of Land Management

Tester delivers floor speech ahead of vote; says confirmation is “a huge win for Montana’s public lands, and the thousands of good-paying jobs that depend on them.”

The U.S. Senate today confirmed Montana’s Tracy Stone-Manning as the next Director of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) after a sustained push by U.S. Senator Jon Tester on behalf of her nomination.

Tester spoke on the Senate floor prior to the vote and praised Stone-Manning as a tireless advocate for Montana’s outdoor spaces who will serve as a nonpartisan steward for our public lands and Montana’s $7 billion outdoor recreation economy that depends on them, and released the following statement:

“Today we are taking an important step towards protecting our public lands by putting a real public servant who will hold herself accountable to taxpayers and to our outdoor way of life at the top of the Bureau of Land Management,” Tester said.

“Tracy will bring good old-fashioned Montana common sense to the Bureau, along with a steadfast dedication to managing our public lands and the thousands of good-paying jobs that depend on them. She will lead the agency with honor and with integrity and, as she has done her entire career, Tracy will bring folks together, from both sides of the aisle and all sides of issues, to get things done.”

A former Senior Advisor at the National Wildlife Federation based in Montana, Stone-Manning is also the former Chief of Staff to Governor Steve Bullock, and previously served as a senior aide to Tester.
