Keep Public Lands in Public Hands

by Juliet Daniels

2012-08-25-10-18-32I believe our national public lands should remain in federal hands and I am prepared to fight legislation that would change that. Our national lands are a part of our national heritage and need to be shared by all. Not only do the benefits of our national lands need to be shared by all, but the responsibility for maintaining and improving them also needs to be shared by all. I love our State parks but it is not wise from either a management or financial point of view to try to turn all of the federal land into state parks. If federal lands were transferred to the state I believe access for the citizens of Wyoming to much of it would be lost.
