Obama locks up 13m Acres of Fed Land
A leaked partial document produced by the Bureau of Land Management
and obtained by Fox News suggests the Obama administration is considering a plan to lock up 13 million acres of land -- and the Department of Interior is refusing to answer questions.
First, a little background: The federal government owns about one-third of the land in the United States -- most of it in western states. For example, 84 percent of Nevada is owned by Uncle Sam.
But the government leases large parcels of federal land for all sorts of things -- grazing, mining, exploration, recreation.
