Recently, Utah Senator Mike Lee uploaded a video that explains why excessive federal land ownership is a bad idea for ALL Americans, not just those in the West.
He explains that, "The federal government's monopoly on land in the West is profoundly unfair and grossly inefficient. Not only does it deprive the state and local governments of much needed tax revenue that could help provide better public goods and services - it also embroils the local land use and management in endless bureaucratic red tape, stifling economic development, and undermining sensible environmental protection."
Please watch Senator Mike Lee and ask your state and national elected officials to support the transfer of Public Lands and help restore the sovereignty that was intended for our states by our nation's founders.
