Leader of new Sagebrush Rebellion argues for local control of public land

Dec 10, 2013

Last week we aired an interview with UM forestry professor Martin Nie, about the resurgence of a western movement to get federal lands turned over to state and local governments - and why he thinks that's a bad idea. In this feature interview, News Director Sally Mauk talks with one of the leaders of the new Sagebrush Rebellion - Utah state representative, and CEO of the American Lands Council, Ken Ivory - about why he thinks state ownership of federal lands is a good idea.

Ivory authored the Utah Transfer of Public Lands Act, which calls for the federal government to hand over management of federal land in Utah to that state by next year.
