The U.S. just changed how it manages a tenth of its land

For decades, the federal government has prioritized oil and gas drilling, hardrock mining and livestock grazing on public lands across the country.

That could soon change under a far-reaching Interior Department rule that puts , and development on equal footing with resource extraction.
The final rule released Thursday represents a seismic shift in the management of roughly 245 million acres of public property
