    I was quite dismayed with Rep. Ken Ivory's questioning of Carl Fisher, Exec. Director of Save Our Canyons, (SOC) He questioned where SOC got there funds as if it is part of a nefarious cabal of environmental groups. He would do himself and the community well to spend some time with Carl and I am sure he would realize that Carl and SOC are true stewards of the Wasatch, the precious mountains we all love

    Why am I not surprised that Utahs legislator real estate developers are "front and center" whenever citizens are talking about use/misuse of land?

    If there's a dollar to be made on dirt - there they are!

    The last thing we should do is let Ken Ivory get involved. The Utah legislature can make anything much worse.

    Re-elect no one, ever.

    Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, was particularly critical of ceding more control to the federal government when it already lacks the resources to manage the acreage it has.

    Lets see the lands in question are Federal lands, under Federal control as such as there is no ceding more control as the Central Wasatch National Conservation and Recreation Act affects nothing other than Federal lands. It would be really nice if Ivory could at least talk something other than non-sense.
