Land Swap Bill Moves Forward

Leland_Christensen

A bill to allow the State of Wyoming to enter into an agreement with the US Department of Interior for the trade of land in their acquisition of the remaining two parcels in Grand Teton National Park was successfully introduced in the state senate Tuesday and referred to the Agriculture Committee.  Senator Leland Christensen who introduced the bill explained the bill would allow the State Lands and Investments Board to work with the federal government on an agreeable solution to the incomplete sale.  Leland said the bill they were considering was for a parcel-for-parcel exchange, but an amendment was in the making to expand the arrangement to include minerals or money in the deal.  He also said the Department of Interior had agreed to foot the bill new appraisals or any other expenses involved in the deal.  However, Christensen also explained that should the appraisal come in lower than the originally agreed upon price, the state reserves the right to withdraw from the offer.  The bill passed on first reading with only one dissenting vote.

    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
