The legislation needed to consummate the $107-million dollar sale of lands in Grand Teton National Park to the federal government is experiencing a certain amount of opposition in the House as it struggles through its final readings on the floor. Representative Mark Semlek of Crook County told members of the House he just doesn’t trust the federal government to uphold their end of the deal. Representative Pat Childers of Park County echoed that distrust and added that it required a threat by former Governor Dave Freudenthal to get the government to move on the issue at all. All of those speaking also alluded to the devaluing dollar that would be received and spoke of the mineral rights which have a lasting value that would be given up. However, when it comes to hoping for a land exchange rather than a buy-out, Representative Keith Gingery told the legislators, ‘don’t delude yourselves.’ The issue is in third reading today before being passed on to the Senate for deliberation there.
