The Future of Publicly Owned Lands - PodcastRecent legislation passed by the State of Utah has demanded that the federal government extinguish title to certain public lands that the federal government currently holds. The State of Utah claims that the federal government promised (at statehood when the federal government obtained the lands) that the federal ownership would be of limited duration and that the bulk of those lands would be timely disposed of by the federal government into private ownership or otherwise returned to the State. This White Paper provides a legal overview of these claims. Prof. Donald Kochan discusses the ideas presented in his paper joined by critical commenter Mr. David Garbett on this previously recorded conference call.

Featuring:

  • Prof. Donald J. Kochan, Professor of Law, Chapman University School of Law
  • Mr. David Garbett, Staff Attorney, Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance
  • Moderator: Mr. Dean Reuter, Vice President & Director of Practice Groups, The Federalist Society
