Senators and Representatives,

       Every year the Federal Government budgets “Payments in Lieu of Taxes” (PILT) for rural communities that contain Federal lands.  Because local governments are unable to earn revenue from these Federal Lands, the Federal Government returns some of their land earnings in the form of PILT.  This year, our office found an article showing that the Federal government is going to give out $465 Million in PILT money to local governments.  Here is a link to the article we found - https://www.doi.gov/pressreleases/secretary-zinke-senators-and-local-officials-announce-rural-communities-receive-record.  I have created a few visual representations of the data found on this website.  I hope you find them helpful.
