Grijalva McEachin Lettter to Zinke on Cason Review Authority May 2 2017

A letter from Ranking Member Grijalva (D-Ariz.) and Rep. McEachin (D-Va.) asking Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke for more information about the newly expanded authority of Deputy Secretary James Cason to review major decisions and grants of more than $100,000. The scope of Cason's authority to cancel grants of $100,000 or more or to reverse decisions with "nationwide, regional or statewide impacts" -- a term Zinke did not define in his relevant memo -- is unclear.
