Right now there are 4 bills in the senate HJR3, HCR1, HB148 and HB91 these bills purpose that federal government surrender more than 30 million acres of land within Utah’s borders.
National Parks would be returned to the federal government, but the state could first set conditions allowing oil and gas drilling, mining, grazing, logging and travel on the land.
These bills also effect Anglers & Hunters in the fact that Utah gov its trying to take over Federal Land that surrounds Utah's waters and recreation areas. This could mean tighter restrictions like HB141 ( The law that prohibits anglers from fishing waters that flow over private land )
But on the flip side could be a good thing Utah would gain revenue from the resources those lands hold. ( oil and gas drilling, mining, grazing, logging and travel on the land. ) That the feds currently profit from.
What do you guys think ?
