Ranching family loses federal allotments

An Oregon ranching family has lost its grazing permits five weeks after they were restored.

The interior department revoked four federal allotments for the Hammond family, totaling more than 26-thousand acres. The Trump administration restored the 10-year grazing permits in January, but the new administration says it violated law by not allowing 15-days for environmental groups to file a dispute.

Dwight & Steven Hammond originally lost the permits in 2014, after being charged & convicted for setting fires to rangelands. The two were pardoned by President Trump.
