    Land Grab in NM

    I found this article pretty disturbing. There is a link to a .PDF with a section that discusses lands potentially marked for appropriation in the article.

    It's been pulled, although there's a lot more coming down from the House we need to keep a close eye on.

    No one else can print enough money to oversee them.

    The problem there is that states like Utah want that land to sell off mineral, oil and gas rights without concern about the sensitivity of the area. A good example of this is the Bears Ears Cultural Area of southern Utah. It would be a giant land grab and the public would be the loser.

    NM would sell to the highest bidder in a heartbeat, and the highest bidder(s) wouldn't be outdoorsmen.

    How much recreation and multi-use activities do you think happen or are supported on State Land Office holdings?

    How much are you willing to pay out of pocket for land access?

    The state? Sure, they're trustworthy. Pretty sure your only access to State land is via your hunting license.
