EXCITING LEGISLATION!! LANDS BILLS

From: Clark and Maggie R.
Sent on: Saturday, March 3, 2012 7:05 PM

W912 Friends,

 

I fully support the efforts of our fine representatives in the Lands Bills detailed below.  We have had two meetings in the past month that touched on these bills with Chris Herrod (State Representative) and John Swallow (Chief Deputy, Utah Attorney General Office) presenting the discussion.

 

I urge you to contact your state senator (possibly Stuart Reid, Allen Christensen, or Scott Jenkins) to support these House bills.

LANDS BILLS IN SENATE!!

 

 

 

THESE ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT BILLS OF THE SESSION

BECAUSE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAVE INTERFERRED WITH OUR

SOVEREIGNTY AND PROSPERITY FOR 116 YEARS SINCE OUR STATEHOOD.

 

CONTROL OF OUR LANDS WILL:

 

1.      BRING PROPSERITY TO OUR PEOPLE AS JOBS ARE CREATED BY ACCESS TO OUR LANDS AND RESOURCES.

2.      BRING PROSPERITY TO OUR STATE AS IT IS ABLE TO COLLECT SEVERANCE TAXES FROM THE MINING OF RESOURCES

3.      BRING PROSPERITY TO OUR SCHOOLS AS WE ARE ABLE TO RECEIVE PROCEEDS FROM THE SCHOOL TRUST LANDS THAT ARE CURRENTLY LOCKED UP BY THE FEDS

4.     ESTABLISH UTAH AS A STATE ON EQUAL FOOTING WITH THE REST OF THE STATES!

 

H.J.R. 3  Joint Resolution on Federal Transfer of Public Lands (Barrus, R.)

See bill text:  http://le.utah.gov/~2012/bills/hbillamd/hjr003.pdf

 

·        This resolution is the “Declaration of Independence” for the Sovereign State of Utah.  It lists all of Utah’s Public Lands grievances from the federal government’s breach of contract regarding Utah’s Enabling Act, to the passage of the Federal Land Policy Management Act which codified the policy of the fed’s unconstitutional retention of public lands, to all of the damages Utah has incurred from federal possession of the lands (loss of tax revenue, inability to access lands, mis-management of rangelands and forests, etc, etc, etc)

 

H.B. 148  Transfer of Public Lands Act and Related Study (Ivory, K.)

See bill text:  http://le.utah.gov/~2012/bills/hbillint/hb0148.pdf

 

·        This bill requires the United States to transfer title to public lands to Utah by the end of 2014 with proceeds going to the US and the State School Fund.

 

H.C.R. 1  Concurrent Resolution - Letter to Federal Government  (Herrod, C.)

See bill text:  http://le.utah.gov/~2012/bills/hbillamd/hcr001.pdf

 

·        This resolution demands that the US Government communicate to Utah their intent to either sell public lands or cede control of them over to Utah’s government, and it provides that, if the US Government fails to do that, the State of Utah will take action to vindicate its rights under the US Constitution, the Utah Enabling Act and natural law.

 

H.B. 91-S1  Utah Enabling Act Litigation

See bill text:  http://le.utah.gov/~2012/bills/hbillint/hb0091.pdf

 

·        This bill requires the attorney general to file an action to enforce Section 9 of the Utah Enabling Act if the United States does not comply with the other bills and resolutions in the Public Lands package.

 

ALL OF THESE BILLS PASSED THE HOUSE BY MORE THAN 2/3 MAJORITY AND WE ARE WAITING FOR THEM TO BE PLACED ON THE READING CALENDAR IN THE SENATE.
