Montana legislature kills second resolution opposing federal land transfer or sale

February 26, 2017View for printing

A resolution introduced in the state House against selling federal lands or transferring them to Montana met the same fate as a similar measure introduced in the Senate this week, with majority Republicans voting to table the measure.

On Friday, Rep. Virginia Court, D-Billings, brought House Joint Resolution 11 before the House Natural Resources Committee. The resolution, which states a policy position and is not legally binding, recognizes the value of public lands to Montana's economy, recreation, heritage and quality of life, and opposed efforts to claim, take over or sell off those lands.
