3/6/12: Controlling Utah's Public Lands

Salt Lake City, Utah – The Utah House passed a suite of bills last week that would put control of public land in the hands of the state. Some 64% of Utah is managed by the federal government and that's land state lawmakers contend was promised to Utah when it became a state. Proponents argue this is a chance to increase revenue for schools, but critics say it's an unrealistic effort that would violate the Constitution. Tuesday, we're talking about public land - who should own it and what should be done with it.
