Utah to Seize Own Land from Government, Challenge Federal Dominance of Western States

featured-imgFox Nation – by Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times

In three weeks, Utah intends to seize control of 31.2 million acres of its own land now under the control of the federal government. At least, that’s the plan.

In an unprecedented challenge to federal dominance of Western state lands, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert in 2012 signed the “Transfer of Public Lands Act,” which demands that Washington relinquish its hold on the land, which represents more than half of the state’s 54.3 million acres, by Dec. 31.  

So far, however, the federal government hasn’t given any indication that it plans to cooperate. Still, state Rep. Ken Ivory, who sponsored the legislation, isn’t deterred.

“That’s what you do any time you’re negotiating with a partner. You set a date,” said Mr. 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.”

In other words, there won’t be any escorting of federal officials by state troopers to the eastern border. Instead, he said, state officials will proceed with a program of education, negotiation, legislation and litigation.

    I applaud the idea, but if the’re not going to eject Federal officers from the land, then its just bluster to impress the home folks. The Federal government has no Constitutional right to claim state lands that I’m aware of. They will always do what they are allowed to get away with.

    Yes, and why don’t we have someone give them flowers and chocolate, too while we’re at it. WTF? Mr. Ivory needs to take his Ivory soap and clean his ass and mouth better if he thinks taking the Nazi insurgent government out on a date is going to make it all better.
