Arizonans to U.S.: Grand Canyon is Ours
Arizona is going to be in the news again! This time they want to take over some of the federal land in AZ. Turns out the feds “own” about 50% of all the land in the western states.
So, why do the feds need to own 2/3 of Utah? Good question. Maybe if they sold off some of the land they “own” we could reduce the deficit.
Gov. Brewer vetoed a bill that was presented to do the same thing, and now it is going to be put on the ballot for the people to decide.
My opinion is the central government of the USA has no business “owning” so much of the land in the West. I bet they “own” a fair piece of Alaska as well.
