Public Land Pros And Cons

Satisfactory Essays

Thank you for contacting me about the use of public land. I Appreciate hearing your views on this important issue. Currently, the federal government owns more than 660 million acres of land—around 30 percent of all land in America— effectively restricting new recreation and economic development in numerous states. Putting Washington in charge of federal lands has resulted in the loss of economic opportunities, taken away decisions from local citizens and in many has caused environmental issues stemming from land mismanagement. As an Ohioan from a district where nature has so much to offer, I believe States should take a more active role in managing public lands. Public lands are for the public, and Washington should grant more access not less.
