dc.description.abstractThis Article examines the traditional permit qualifications analysis, explains the role played by the regulations that created it, and argues that the BLM’s new approach to the qualifications issue has finally opened the door for nontraditional permittees to a degree not seen before in over seventy years of federal government regulation of livestock grazing on public lands. In Part I, this Article introduces the concept of federal lands ranches and discusses the exclusive club of federal lands ranchers, who, until recently, controlled the vast majority of grazing permits. Part II examines the history of livestock grazing on public domain lands prior to Congress’s passage of the Taylor Grazing Act in 19345 and the origins of the terminology contained in the past and present qualifications rules. Part III discusses the provisions of the Taylor Grazing Act under which the Secretary of the Interior asserts the authority to create qualifications regulations. Part IV traces the historical evolution of the qualifications regulations and discusses the BLM’s current requirements and approach. Part V analyzes one example of a modern, nontraditional permittee that became qualified and obtained grazing permits on environmentally sensitive allotments in Utah and Arizona under the new model and concludes that this model will allow the BLM to more easily implement its statutory obligations and will greatly benefit the federal range.en_US
