Bill 621 has been introduced in the House directing the Secretary of the Interior to start selling Western lands in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-con ... e-bill/621

Unfortunately which lands is a secret because the bill has no text. It is in line with the ideas of two Utah representatives who are keen to mine, drill, graze Utah until the earth is completely subdued. Reminds me of Secretary of the Interior James Watt who believed we didn't need to be concerned about destroying the environment because the Apocalypse was going to rapture all the good guys up to heaven any time now.

On the bright side, Peter Thiel could just tell his buddy to sell Hualapai Playa to him and donate it to the Burning Man Foundation.

Rep Jason Chaffetz and Rep Bob Bishop of Utah start their move to disassemble Western US lands.

Eliminate BLM law enforcement and block grant responsibility to county sheriffs https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-con ... e-bill/622. (This is actually the position of the Oregon Bundy standoff and the Constitutional Sheriff crowd)

Sell select Federal lands https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-con ... e-bill/621 (still no text)

Here is a list of lands for disposal put together by Interior Dept as required by the Republican congress in 1997 and hosted on Rep Chaffetz's web site https://chaffetz.house.gov/sites/chaffe ... report.pdf, a likely start.

These could affect the Burning Man event.

(BLM official tickets and family perks, oops: https://www.doioig.gov/reports/investig ... sory-agent)

Know more important crazy things are happening too...

And that's Drumpf's way of "draining the swamp"? Looks more like he's restocking it. :evil:

that's a well put observation. thanks.
Knowing people have to be in the jobs and positions, I'd say "draining the swamp" would mean of people he does not like, knowing it has to be restocked, no?
Not that I agree with who he's choosing, but yeah, that'd be the process.
and you nailed it, J.K.

Rep Chaffetz of Utah https://chaffetz.house.gov/ has withdrawn HR621 (for now) which proposed selling some Western lands:

Burning Man lives on our land administered by the BLM.

Congress is trying to block BLM public benefits in favor of mining with two new bills.
