US to ease oil drilling controls protecting imperiled birdBILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — The Trump administration moved forward Thursday with plans to ease restrictions on oil and gas drilling and other activities across millions of acres in the American West that were put in place to protect an imperiled bird species. Land management documents released by the U.S. Interior Department show the administration intends to open more areas to leasing and allow waivers for drilling to encroach into the habitat of greater sage grouse. Critics warned the changes could wipe out sage grouse colonies as drilling disrupts breeding grounds Interior Deputy Secretary David Bernhardt said the agency was responding to requests by states to give them more flexibility in how public lands are managed.
