A host of Western cities are courting Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke in the hopes of attracting the new BLM headquarters. The move is part of Secretary Zinke’s plan to relocate the agency closer to the bulk of the lands it oversees. According to Dan Boyce of National Public Radio’s Weekend Edition, a few of the cities currently pitching the agency are Boise, Idaho, Grand Junction, Colorado, and Salt Lake City, which may well be the early favorite. Not only is Salt Lake City currently implementing $3.2 billion in improvements to its international airport, which is a Delta Air Lines hub, but it has a strong track record of wooing federal installations such as the $1.2 billion NSA Data Center, which opened in 2013.
