Description

HB 291 (and its companion SB 483) would have created a 17-member commission to study the possibility of transferring federal public lands to state control. Such a study would be a waste of time and resources since any such land transfers are unconstitutional. Under the U.S. Constitution, the federal government has the authority and responsibility of managing all federal public lands. HB 291 and SB 483 attempted to violate the Constitution by promoting the transfer of federal public lands to state control.

Outcome

HB 291 died in the House Judiciary Committee. SB 483 died in the Senate Conservation Committee.
