Utah, it's not your land.
Wasting $3,000,000+ of tax payer's money to fund this lawsuit. The State
will lose as they have no legitimate claim to the land. If somehow they
were to get the land they have absolutely no reasonable way to fund the
management of it unless they sell it. They sell then land then it's locked
up and nobody will ever be able to enjoy it again. Everyone will lose in
this scenario. There would be no winners. At all.
@SpaceCowboy69"We will not develop every acre because we as
Utahns still like our wild places and wild things."Our
state's track record of electing land developers and the actual development
of land in areas not suitable for development would suggest otherwise.
I don't understand why everyone thinks the Federal govt can more
effectively manage our lands than us. What makes them so special? The Federal
govt doesn't run anything especially well. Just because Utah takes over
and manages the Federal land that was promised to us at statehood, doesn't
mean that we will loose all of the wilderness that we have. We will not develop
every acre because we as Utahns still like our wild places and wild things.
