The Wyoming Senate Friday blocked a move to amend the Transfer of Lands Bill in order to put the lands in Grand Teton National Park back out to bid rather than immediately complete the sale to the Interior Department. Defeating the amendment with a vote of 24 to 5, the bill itself was passed on by acclamation to face third and final reading next week. At stake are 1400 acres of land in three non-contiguous parcels owned by the state within the boundaries of Grand Teton National Park. The Interior Department late last year agreed to purchase the land for $107-million dollars, but since it was not put out to competitive bid, the sale must be approved by the state legislature as an exception to state policy. Approval is now a single vote away in the Senate.
