Default Signs Point to Administration Plan to Lock Up 13M Acres of Federal Land "In The West"

Signs Point to Administration Plan to Lock Up 13M Acres of Federal Land
By Brian Wilson

Published May 27, 2010
| FOXNews.com


A leaked partial document produced by the Bureau of Land Management and obtained by Fox News suggests the Obama administration is considering a plan to lock up 13 million acres of land -- and the Department of Interior is refusing to answer questions.

First, a little background: The federal government owns about one-third of the land in the United States -- most of it in western states. For example, 84 percent of Nevada is owned by Uncle Sam.

But the government leases large parcels of federal land for all sorts of things -- grazing, mining, exploration, recreation.

Those commercial activities create jobs and tax revenue for the states. Tax revenues from commercial activity on federal lands often pays for local schools. However, with the single stroke of his pen, President Obama can use the Antiquities of Act of 1906 to turn federal land into National Monuments.

That would effectively lock up the land from any kind of private use or development.

The plan may actually be more than 13 million acres. Republican members of the House have asked for the rest of the memo, but the Department of the Interior is refusing to hand it over.

Rep. Doc Hastings, R-Wash., said he is worried.

"When the administration is, for lack of a better word, stiffing us -- you know that causes concern," Hasting said during a hallway interview on Capitol Hill. "We do have responsibilities to our constituents to make sure that when there is a huge change on federal lands in their area, that they are part of that process. We are afraid that that process is going to be taken away from them and that's why we're asking for these documents."

Republicans on the House Natural Resources Committee were unable to garner Democratic support for a resolution requiring the Department of Interior to produce some 2,000 documents it has on this matter.

The DOI did cough up 300 e-mails that Republicans say do not reveal very much.

When contacted by Fox News, the department's press secretary hinted that the GOP request is under further review.

"This is an on-going process," Kindra Barkoff wrote. "We may supplement this response as the process is concluded."

There are those who believe these lands are precious -- and should be locked up from development. But in western states this is controversial.

Western state governors are worried that the Obama administration is going to do this quickly and quietly -- without public hearings. They want the process to be more transparent. But for now, those documents are being tightly held by the Obama Department of Interior.

In a completely unrelated incident


In the Paper today

Members of the Obama administration will pull into Bozeman next week to glean ideas on how America should manage its open spaces in the 21st century.

The listening session is part of a new Obama administration initiative to reconnect Americans to the outdoors and "determine how the federal government can best advance" local conservation efforts.

Representing the administration will be White House, Interior Department and Agriculture Department staff members. The listening session will run from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Strand Union Building on the Montana State University campus. Officials are requesting that people RSVP with Bart Huber at 587-6957 or bart.huber@mt.usda.gov, but say no one will be turned away from the meeting unless the room reaches capacity.

Several conservation and open spaces groups lauded the effort, saying it will give them a good opportunity to showcase what Montanans have achieved in preserving open space and share ways they think the feds can help.

Kelly Pohl, managing director of the Gallatin Valley Land Trust, said her group will lobby for permanent tax incentives for conservation easements and funding for trails.

"We're hoping to convey the importance of trails that connect communities with the great outdoors," she said.

Jared White with the Wilderness Society in Bozeman said he hopes the Obama administration learns from local conservation efforts.

"I believe it's partly them trying to learn how local partnerships are working together to preserve their clean water and air," he said. "This is a place where stereotypes disappear of who is an environmentalist."

In a memo announcing the America's Great Outdoors Initiative, President Barack Obama said the United States is losing the "great outdoors" that "have shaped the rugged independence and sense of community that define the American spirit."

"Farms, ranches, forests and other valuable natural resources are disappearing at an alarming rate," he said.

The memo lays out goals of the initiative: reconnect Americans, especially children, with the outdoors; build upon state, local, private and tribal conservation priorities and determine how the federal government can advance them; and use "science-based management practices to restore and protect our lands and waters for future generations."

Here is a letter I received recently. The information is very valuable, so copy it, and send it to all of your friends.

Letter to Share:

I thank governor Butch Otter for his help, along with that of County Commissioner Gordon Cruickshank in helping me regain access to my private property via a 130 year old RS2477 road, which Suzanne Rainville illegally ordered closed on April 20th, without any public comment or any due process. I thank anyone and everyone else who has had a part in saving my personal property rights from certain destruction by the always abusive USFS ranger Suzanne Rainville and her Forest Destruction Team.

For more than 38 days I lived in fear of fines or imprisonment simply for driving to my cabin on the river near Yellow Pine. However, I was issued a temporary access permit just yesterday. Today a Payette National forest ranger threatened my brother with fines and imprisonment for driving to my cabin, even though I already HAVE a temporary special use permit. There is still an ongoing battle with the Payette National Forest over the use of my driveway, and citizens from Yellow Pine have gotten locked behind closed gates 20 miles from nowhere, abused, threatened, harassed almost daily since Suzanne Rainville took power.

Further, many of our nation's historical treasures were intentionally destroyed by the Payette National Forest under the careful eye of Suzanne Rainville and two of her predecessors. They intentionally broke the law and destroyed nationally registered historical landmarks, simply to "cleanse the land" of any human trace.

Using nice words to describe the Payette National Forest Destruction Team, I would describe them as radical, overly zealous, fanatical and extreme.

There are dozens of witnesses waiting in the backcountry to testify as to the illegal removing of historical landmarks, many on private property. Dozens more can testify to the Payette National Forest illegally locking the entire town of Yellow Pine behind closed gates on the South Fork of the Salmon River, and holding them prisoner. One prominent community member almost died due to being denied medical treatment by locking of the gate by the Payette National Forest Destruction Team.

It's nice to see our state stand up for it's rights. Thank you governor Butch Otter, Commissioner Gordon Cruickshank, Valley County Commissioners, and everyone who has brought the criminal actions of the Payette National Forest Destruction Team to light.

Sincerely, Scott Amos
