    Utah to seize its land back from the federal government

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 9:04 am

    Good for Utah! Idaho should do the same thing. The federal government currently owns 80% of Idaho lands. The locals know better how to manage their lands, and all the feds do is regulate it, so no one can enjoy it. The Federal Government has been gobbling up land in the west for years, and it’s good to see someone finally stand up to them. I’ll be praying for their success.

    The federal government has 31.2 million acres of Utah’s land, and Utah wants it back.

    According to the Washington Times on Wednesday, in three weeks, Utah plans to seize control of its own land now under the control of the federal government. Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, in an unprecedented challenge to federal dominance of Western state lands, in 2012 signed the “Transfer of Public Lands Act,” which demands that Washington relinquish its hold on the land. The land being held represents more than half of the state’s 54.3 million acres, by Dec. 31.

    State Rep. Ken Ivory, who sponsored the legislation, isn’t deterred even though the federal government hasn’t given any indication that it plans to cooperate. “That’s what you do any time you’re negotiating with a partner. You set a date,” said Ivory. “Unfortunately, our federal partner has decided they don’t want to negotiate in good faith. So we’ll move forward with the four-step plan that the governor laid out.” That plan involves a program of education, negotiation, legislation and litigation. “We’re going to move forward and use all the resources at our disposal,” stated Ivory, who also heads the American Lands Council, which advocates the relinquishing of federal lands to the control of the states.
