WHERE WE'VE BEEN
It would be impossible to list here all of the work being done to bring about the Transfer of Public Lands, but over the past three months, ALC President Ken Ivory has slept on hotel beds more than 31 days, hitting 8 different states, been on more than a dozen different radio shows, had 63 scheduled phone calls (...and hundreds of unscheduled calls), and participated in over 156 meetings. Every one of those events has been in an effort to educate every elected official, and every person voting for those elected officials about the truth concerning our public lands.
One important meeting that took place this past month was the UT Public Lands Strategy Meeting. In attendance were key Utah congressional players, the governor and his staff, legislators and vital contacts throughout the community. Working together, this group is looking to get Utah's lands transferred to the state through a four stage plan: Education, Negotiation, Legislation, and possibly Litigation if need be. Having our elected officials working together goes a long way toward ensuring our success.
