Finally: President Trump is Dispersing the Federal Government

After the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced it is moving its agricultural research division from D.C. to Kansas City, the Bureau of Land Management announced today that is is moving its headquarters from Washington, D.C. to Grand Junction, Colorado.

For many years, I have advocated dispersement of the federal government (the most recent essay is here). While these are small steps, I'm pleasantly surprised the Trump Administration is actually doing it.

Think about it: Why in the world should the people who research agriculture and interface with land-grand colleges be in DC? BLM manages land in the West; that is where it should be.

Now, if we can move Transportation to Chicago, Health and Human Services to Atlanta, the rest of Agriculture to Wichita, etc., we'll really be on our way.
