Wyoming Seeking Solution To Completing Land Sale

Mead

The deadline for the next payment to the state of Wyoming for parcels within Grand Teton National Park that are being sold to the federal government passed over the weekend without the third of four payments being made.  While that could spell a broken contract allowing the state to move forward with a sale of the land to someone else, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead says the state is looking for ways to work with the Interior Department to still make the deal happen.  Mead says he thinks it is important that the land become part of the national park.  However he quickly adds that the state of Wyoming should not move forward unless it is paid full compensation for what that land is worth.  Mead says, “Now I think it’s important for us to work with the Secretary of Interior and her staff to see whether or not there’s other alternatives rather than a cash payment, or if there’s a way to get a cash payment that may be on a different time-line. Still, Mead says the solution needs to be made in a timely fashion.  He says the issue has been pending for long enough and he says he believes there is some urgency to settling the deal if it is going to be done at all.  So far, the deal on two of the four sections being sold has already been completed.
