Interior eyes  4-state region  as test site

Map of regions proposed by the Interior Department, as part of a department-wide reorganization effort. The agency will form the Upper Colorado Basin during a pilot phase of the prorgam.

A four-state region, including Colorado, will serve as a test site for reorganization of the U.S. Department of Interior.

The reorganization effort, which is led by Susan Combs, the senior adviser to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, would simplify the way the Interior Department and its agencies are organized.
