NEW MEXICO RAC

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) New Mexico has two Resource Advisory Councils (RACs) within its borders.  The RACs operate on the principle of collaborative decision-making and strive for consensus before making official recommendations to the BLM Designated Federal Official.

The Northern New Mexico and Southern New Mexico RACs are each comprised of 12 members representing a balance of public land resources and users in the following categories:

  • Four members who represent Federal grazing permittees; transportation or rights-of-way interests; developed outdoor recreation, off-highway vehicle users, or commercial recreation activities; the commercial timber industry; or energy and mineral development interests;
  • Four members who represent environmental organizations; dispersed recreational activities; archaeological and historical interests; or wild horse and burro interests; and
  • Four members who represent State, county, or local elected officials; state agencies responsible for management of natural resources, land, or water; local Indian Tribes; academicians in natural resources management or natural sciences; or the affected public-at-large.
