They've been working on these swaps since the 2012 elections when the "New" party won some seats in Cheyenne. Then mid-term, 2014, they won a lot more seats in the Legislature. These, these, uh...."our representatives", talked about succeeding and taking the FS and BLM lands away from the Feds. But that would take enormous amount of money for the state to pull off. So OK....then the Tea Party pushed new laws and raised taxes, planning, preparing, for the takeover. Then Constitutional law muddied up the whole thing so we're gonna try the land swap route.Yeah, that's big.
Some of these work out really well to consolidate FS, and BLM lands, but I'm not familiar with this one.
