A U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) official said this week that the planned relocation of its headquarters from Washington, D.C. to Grand Junction, Colo,. will save taxpayers at least $50 million.

The move, confirmed on Monday by U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, isn't without its critics though.
