Is There A Modern Day Thomas Hart Benton In The Running?

When the lands in the States from Michigan to Iowa to Louisiana and to Florida were as much as 90% federally controlled for decades, a leader rose up who was relentlessly committed to freeing their lands from federal control. This leader was U.S. Sen. Thomas Hart Benton (D-Mo). He rallied those states to compel Congress to transfer title to their lands.

No one wants our children's education to be sub-par because of a lack of funding. Yet, this laundry list of negative consequences is exactly what is happening throughout the west because of the failed federal policies that have been inflicted on our public lands for decade
