This is the March 2, 1995 hearing on "Trends in Federal Landownership and Management," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Resources. From the opening statement of Don Young: "The committee is meeting today to hear testimony on trends in Federal landownership and management. [...] I have never believed that the official government statistics which show that Federal landownership has actually decreased in the lower 48 states. As a result, last year Congressman Pombo and I requested the GAO [Government Accountability Office] determine how much public land has been locked up for multiple-use management and the net gain in Federal landownership since 1964. [...] As you can see from this chart facing you, GAO found that 95,000,000 acres of public lands have been locked up in varying degrees during this 29-year period." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: John H. Anderson, Terry L. Anderson, John Baranek, Ron Johnson, Ralph Lamoreaux, Bob Lessard, and Anna Sparks.
