University of Idaho Report Finds Public Lands Takeover Would Lose Money

There are 1 comment on the Boise Weekly story from Dec 9, 2014, titled University of Idaho Report Finds Public Lands Takeover Would Lose Money. In it, Boise Weekly reports that:

In 2013, the Idaho Legislature opened the discussion of taking over nearly 34 million acres of federal lands in the state, creating the Federal Lands Interim Committee to study potential benefits and costs of the takeover. Two reports later came before the committee-one stating the transfer would earn money, the other stating a loss.

The University did not take into cvontext the moneys paid by this state to fire control. The US Forest Service will not allow the cutting of insect laden trees while the state does. State fires in the past are usually caused by fires from the Forest service trees.
idaho county 2 fires set by the FS agency spread out of control.

Another is the costs of those agencies by you and I the tax payer and the trees not being managed correctly. No! The University has always been liberal in their assertions. Utah is now breaking ground to take over their Federal lands. their university studies are totally different.

Other western States like Nevada , who had most of their grazing rights removed by the BLM. This is critical to idahos future. the mining industry is being given to other countries China being the largest as we owe them the most money. China controls the rare earths markets. In Idaho there are areas which have never been developed for mining which could take care of the monies this state needs for hundreds of years.
