House Budget: Public Lands for Sale

When it comes to budgeting in Congress, the devil is in the details.

And the devilish detail in the big budget proposal on Capitol Hill this week, authored by Representative Paul Ryan, is a proposal to sell off of millions of acres of our public lands.

This item, a brief paragraph carefully tucked away on page 33 of the 99 page document, brushes aside the usual rules that govern the selling of our wild places, and put millions of acres up for immediate sale. It calls these lands “unneeded public land,” though the millions of Americans who cherish our wild places, and the wildlife that depend on them would surely disagree. And it cynically notes that “such sales could also potentially be encouraged by reducing appropriations to various agencies.” By starving essential agencies of necessary funds, the budget would force the government to sell off land just to make sure it can function.
