SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) - Liz Cheney says the two biggest threats facing Wyoming are the overreach of the Bureau of Land Management and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Cheney is the 11th Republican to announce a bid for Wyoming’s only seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The Sheridan Press reports (https://bit.ly/1PD6b7O ) that during a visit to Sheridan, Cheney said she would work to scale back the BLM by cutting off funding if she were to be elected.

The BLM manages millions of acres of federally-owned land in Western states including Wyoming. The agency issues and oversees grazing permits and allotments.

Cheney, who is daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, says overall she believes the federal government needs to be drastically scaled back.
