This Week's Homework
  • For those of you in OR, listen to Ken Ivory on KMED's Bill Meyer show and see where to attend a live meeting in your area THIS WEEKEND.  

  • Watch Ken Ivory debate the necessity of the Transfer of Public Lands on the Salt Lake Tribune's TribTalk and share it with 5 friends!

  • Dear Scott,

     

    In March 2013 the State Legislature of Nevada passed A.B. 227 which created the Nevada Land Management Task Force with one county commissioner from each Nevada county to "conduct a study addressing the transfer of public lands in Nevada." Since then, the task force has been researching the feasibility of a transfer of land, the different methods by which it could be done, and the costs and benefits of such a transfer. 

     

    On April 24, 2014 the Task Force presented their Preliminary Draft Report and the numbers were staggering! Assuming that all BLM land within Nevada was transferred to the state, Nevada could expect a net revenue of $371,755,303 - $1,579,721,112 (as seen in Chart #1 below). That last number isn't a typo: it is in fact over $1.5 BILLION! Just imagine what that kind of net revenue would do for local and national economies.  

     

    Chart #1:

     

     

    In contrast: Chart #2 (below) illustrates the revenue of the BLM from 2008-2012 (from the Task Force Preliminary Draft Report, 2014). After a quick look you will see that the net revenue for the BLM in Nevada is a LOSS of just over $31 million. Crazy.

     

    Chart #2:

     

    If you are interested in the finding out more of the details of the Nevada Task Force, their study, and their findings you can view the complete Preliminary Draft Report here.
