Randy Newberg is extremely knowledgable about Federal land transfers. Here’s proof.
In case you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t heard about the proposed Federal land transfers, here’s the basics.
Efforts are currently being made to transfer land that is currently owned and managed by the federal government to the states where the land is located. These lands are located in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming and encompass over 640 million acres of land.
