    Default Federal Land won't be sold

    I won't comment due to my job, but I thought you would find this article informative, I know it is not Alaska, however this could be an indicator of what may lay ahead for Alaska.

    In the small hours of Thursday morning, US congressman Jason Chaffetz announced that he would withdraw a bill he introduced last week that would have ordered the incoming secretary of the interior to immediately sell off 3.3m acres of national land.
    Chaffetz, a representative from Utah, wrote on Instagram that he had a change of heart in the face of strong opposition from “groups I support and care about” who, he said, “fear it sends the wrong message”.
    House bill 621 had ignited a firestorm of indignation from conservationists but also from hunters and fishermen, who contribute to the $646bn generated by outdoor recreation across the US each year.

    May the rivers be crooked and winding, and the portages lonesome, leading to the most "Amazing View".

    The message it sends is that he's an idiot.
