Park Land Sale 2 Votes Away

Leland 2

The Transfer of Lands Bill passed first reading in the Senate.  The bill, House Bill 156, would authorize the completion of the sale of approximately 1400 acres of land surrounded by Grand Teton National Park to the Federal Government for $107-million.  Prior to approval, there was about a half hour of debate involving a variety of questions – most of them were pretty reasonable, says Senator Leland Christiansen.  However, Christiansen says one concerned the validity of the agreement within the US Constitution, which he said was outside the state legislature’s jurisdiction. Most of the discussions actually took place prior to yesterday’s reading where Christiansen says questions were addressed by the Teton Delegation for members of both the House and the Senate. With approval on round one, the bill now goes on to two more readings before passage is final.

Those were just some of the topics covered in hunter education class. I’ve actually taken the class twice. I took it when I was Colby’s […]
