Carlsbad CurrentArgus (Feb. 12, 2020) – President Donald Trump requested $1.2 billion to fund the BLM in fiscal year 2021, with $199.3 million earmarked for the agency’s Energy and Minerals programs, as fossil fuels and renewable energy generated the highest revenue of all uses of BLM-owned land.

About $139 million will fund the BLM’s oil and gas programs, read a news release, while $29.5 million was appropriated for renewable energy to support wind, solar and geothermal energy development.
