The Land Grab Deemed a Backroom Deal
The Washington Times quotes Myron Ebell on the land grab hidden in the NDAA:
Beware the land grab, adds Myron Ebell, energy and environment director at the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
“This is a backroom deal locking up federal land so it cannot be used to produce natural resources, such as energy, minerals, livestock and timber — a devastating economic effect on people in the rural West,” he says. “This move also comes at a time when the National Park Service cannot adequately take care of many of the national parks, including Yellowstone, Yosemite and Grand Canyon. The system has multibillion-dollar maintenance backlogs.”
