Members of the Teton County Legislative Delegation met yesterday with the Director of Wyoming’s Office of State Lands and Investments to discuss the breakdown of the sale of state lands inside Grand Teton National Park to the federal government. Representative Keith Gingery says while the first two parcels have been successfully sold and transferred to the federal government, the sale of the remaining two – valued at approximately $110-million – is threatened by federal budget constraints. The alternative of completing the sale with the exchange of BLM lands along with their mineral rights elsewhere in the state is being discussed. However, if such a land exchange agreement is unable to be realized, Gingery says the State Lands Board is obligated to lease or dispose of the parcels in such a way to realize the largest possible proceeds to benefit the state’s public schools. Among those attending Monday’s meeting were Representatives Keith Gingery, Ruth Ann Petroff and Marti Halverson, and Senators Leland Christensen and Dan Dockstader.
