This is the June 20, 1995 hearing on "State Vs. Federal Land Management," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Lands of the Committee on Resources. From the opening statement of James V. Hansen: "The Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Lands commences today to take testimony on the economies and efficiencies of State management of Federal lands. There is an ever-increasing interest in the West, in rural America and in Congress to find ways to substantially increase the involvement of the State and local governments. The overwhelming discontent in the West stems from the enormous Federal presence through ownership of lands and resources. Although in past decades the Federal Government has been a good neighbor, the trend over the last 20 years has been toward a top- down, command-and-control approach to management of Federal lands." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Fife Symington, Robert H. Nelson, and Don Leal.
