Transfer of federal land to states now has an interest group

William Yardley at the LATimes has a nice story out about the idea that federal land in western states should be transferred to state control.

The argument is not new and fits the long-standing political narrative in western states that land decisions should be made by people close to the land rather than government officials.

Republican presidential candidates are starting to incorporate this narrative into their campaign positions, which is an important development to follow for anyone interested in or affected by land use decisions in the west.
