Did you know the State of Utah has sued the federal government in order to take ownership of 30 million acres of Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service land?
The state would like to have local control, but the state's own legal counsel declared the land-transfer law has "a high probability of being declared unconstitutional." Talk about frivolous lawsuits!
Four academics are studying the economic impact of this transfer. It will be difficult for them to assemble data because federal agencies do not keep track of their income or expenditures state by state. Michigan and Florida taxpayers support federal lands in Utah.
