Gov. Lolo Matalasi Moliga was not in attendance at this week’s Western Governors Association (WGA) Winter Meeting in Las Vegas, where there was to be discussion on regional policy issues, however he is getting details directly from WGA.
 
The governor’s executive assistant Iulogologo Joseph Pereira says Lolo is not leaving the territory any time soon due to pressing issues at home, but plans to leave about the second week of February next year.
 
 The two-day WGA meeting, which ended on Wednesday, had Interior Department Secretary Sally Jewell delivering the keynote address, where she underscored DOI’s commitment to collaborative, landscape-level solutions to conservation and water issues.
 
She highlighted her recent Secretarial Order establishing a Department-wide mitigation strategy to encourage balanced development and landscape-level planning on federal public lands.
 
The Order seeks to ensure consistency and efficiency in the review and permitting of new energy and other infrastructure development projects, while also providing for the conservation, adaptation, and restoration of our nation's valuable natural and cultural resources, according to DOI.
