Letter: Bishop wants to head House panel to ‘help Utah out’ of public lands
First Published Mar 22 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 22 2014 01:01 am

Rep. Rob Bishop, who is hoping to land the chairmanship of the House committee that oversees America’s public lands, said, "They own 70 percent of Utah and they control the other 30 percent through Fish and Wildlife and EPA."

Who are they? I thought they were us, the American people. Isn’t this our land? He goes on to say "I can use this, I think effectively, to help Utah out."

I hope he doesn’t mean public lands out of our hands and into the hands of special interest groups.
