The BLM is the Nation’s largest land management agency and has responsibility for managing
245 million surface acres, primarily in 11 Western States, including Alaska, and 700 million
acres of Federal onshore mineral estate, as well as the responsibility for mineral operations and
cadastral surveys on 56 million acres of Indian trust lands. The BLM is entrusted with managing
13% of the United States land mass and more than 40% of all federally-managed lands. These
lands encompass a broad range of habitats, including desert, grassland, sage-steppe, forest, high-
mountain, and arctic tundra. BLM managements benefits conservation and traditional land
users, while contributing to the vitality of State and local economies and delivering benefits to all
Americans through outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy
production. In the event that Congress is unable to enact appropriations for FY 2014 or a
continuing resolution, most activities of the BLM will be halted.
