The public lands assault is underway in a big way. If this passes, the S.O.I Ryan Zinke, who says he's against public land transfer, may do just that. This is outright theft.

Call/email your representative immediately!

It says the bill calls for selling land deemed unusable by tax payers. I wonder what that means.

There's a ton of federal land in the west that is land locked by private land and I see no reason it should not be sold off.

I'd like to see the requirements for land being sellable.

READ: if there's oil underneath it, it's not usable by taxpayers.

good thing the head of the ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY has built his career battling the ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY on behalf of big oil.

now that he's in charge he can just dismantle the infrastructure he's been trying to circumvent for years.

it's like hiring a convicted pedophile to be a pediatrician.

Well considering just a few weeks ago they deemed federal land to have no monetary value whatsoever, I guess it means that all public land in America is unusable by taxpayers. Don't let the wording fool you, they are against public land in general.

Not dissimilar to the current head of the Wisconsin DNR being an outspoken critic of the Wisconsin DNR prior to her appointment.

I really do share the concern and I spend a lot of time of public land in multiple states and I've emailed my congressman who happens to be the most powerful one.

I just don't think it's the end and have a more positive outlook.

Funny thing about land: they ain't making any more of it. And every year more and more of it is taken away from public access. What kind of world are we leaving for future generations?

Pains me to say it, but, a shitty one.

The bill is officially dead! Looks like that little weenie backed down in the face of massive public backlash.
