Government Land for Rural Services

The government is looking to sell the largest space of forest land in decades, about 300,000 acres to be exact, to pay for rural area services like schools and roads. But, environmentalists and lawmakers are not happy.

“Basically, they’re selling the foundation to pay for the mortgage,” said Eric Antebi, spokesman for the Sierra Club. “These lands really belong to future generations and shouldn’t be sold to the highest bidder. There’s no reason why the world’s biggest economic power needs to sell parkland to make ends meet.” >
