	The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most
of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of
Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including
Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface
mineral estate throughout the nation. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2011,
recreational and other activities on BLM-managed land contributed more
than $130 billion to the U.S. economy and supported more than 600,000
American jobs. The Bureau is also one of a handful of agencies that
collects more revenue than it spends. In FY 2012, nearly $5.7 billion
will be generated on lands managed by the BLM, which operates on a
$1.1 billion budget. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the
health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment
of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by
managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing,
mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural,
historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
