Lummis Seeks Way To Complete Land Sale

Lummis

The US Congress has cut funds to the National Park Service land acquisitions budget.  That means that funds to complete the sale of state lands within Grand Teton National Park this year will not be available.  With that fund cut to less than 1/10 of the requested money, Wyoming US Representative Cynthia Lummis explains that the park service did not rank the sale high enough to receive consideration for the remaining capital. Still, Lummis says she plans to do whatever she can to educate the NPS of the importance of this sale for the next fiscal year.  Lummis says on another track, she has introduced legislation to reauthorize the Federal Land Transaction Facilitation Act which authorizes the federal government to sell public land it has already identified for disposal to fund the purchase of high value land in the same state.  Lummis says the federal government currently owns more than ½-million acres in Wyoming it would like to sell.  Lummis says this program has proved itself to be a successful program in the past for Wyoming, and in her words, “it can help us move forward with a much needed solution for the state school trust land parcels.” parcels.”
