Great American Outdoor Act a Federal Land Grab, Says Kaitlyn Glover With NCBA And PLC

Fri, 28 Aug 2020 08:45:00 CDT

Great American Outdoor Act a Federal Land Grab, Says Kaitlyn Glover With NCBA And PLC The Great American Outdoors Act sounds great but in actuality is a federal land grab says Kaitlyn Glover, who serves double duty as executive director of Natural Resources for the NCBA and executive director of the Public Lands Council.

Glover recently visited with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm director Ron Hays about the federal legislation.

The Public Lands Council (PLC) is a national trade association representing 22,000 ranchers who raise cattle and sheep on federal land.

Everyone loves the outdoors so when people heard we were opposed to a bill with such an aspiring title, you must ask why, Glover said.

The bill has passed both the House and Senate and Glover expects the President to sign the bill.

The bill does two things cattle producers are concerned about, Glover said.

One part addresses the deferred maintenance backlog by the Park service, the BLM and other federal lands agencies have put off for decades, she said.

The National Parks Service has over $13 billion in deferred maintenance and no way to pay for it, she said.

Glover said this is the type of thing that should be put in the annual budget and not shoved to the "credit card" for paying off later.

The real problem with this bill is what it would do to the land and water conservation fund.

The fund was established in 1965 to provide money for states to increase recreational opportunities and allow federal agencies to acquire strategic parcels of land for parks and forests to make the lands more contiguous.

The Great American Outdoors Act makes funding it mandatory and this bypasses Congressional oversight, Glover said.

This allows the federal government to purchase land at a time when they can't take care of the land they already have, she said.

It's a land grab, Glover said.

Under this bill $360 million a year, forever, will go to these federal agencies to buy land, Glover said.
