Mead Worried About Land Sale

Governor Matt Mead

No news is not necessarily good news, and Governor Matt Mead says the lack of movement on the sale of state lands inside Grand Teton National Park has been disconcerting.  Mead says, “We’re a little worried about it.”  He says hewas supportive of the sale because he believes ultimately it is appropriate that the land be part of Grand Teton National Park.  However, he says it is valuable land and the state needs to be paid for it – especially during these economic times.  Says Mead, “We don’t know what’s going to happen, but I think the federal government is struggling right now to find the right-sized check to address those needs.”  Mead says the state will stay on top of the agreement, and he is hopeful it eventually will be successfully completed for the amount agreed upon.  The sale of 1400 acres of state land inside Grand Teton National Park for $17-million was approved and  enabling legislation signed in February of 2011.  However, legislation to fund the deal has been stalled in Washington since early this year.
