wasatch land swap bill. What's this all about?
I saw this today on a congressional record website when looking for something else. Is this a new ski area or something? Usually the forest service leases out the land not sells it outright.
11/17/2011--Introduced.Wasatch Range Recreation Access Enhancement Act - Directs the Secretary of Agriculture (USDA) to convey, by sale, a specified parcel of National Forest System land within the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest in Salt Lake County, Utah, to Canyons-SkiLink, LLC, to allow it to construct a ski-lift, gondola, or tramway to serve as a public-access transportation interconnection of the Wasatch Front and the Wasatch Back Mountains. Requires Canyons-SkiLink to pay to the Secretary an amount that is equal to at least the fair market value of such land. Requires the fair market value of the National Forest System land to be conveyed under this Act to be determined based on an appraisal that is acceptable to the Secretary.

Go search Talisker, They want to sell public land to a Canadian company to build a lift from the canyons to Solitude. All of this is well blogged about.carpe diem vita brevis

Google "Utah politicians sellout like the cheap whores that they are"
"Talisker lies, buys out politicians, assfucks the Wasatch"
That should get you there.

The snide replies in part because it's been discussed a lot. Search function...

This is about the theft of public lands by a canadian corporation without support by
the forest service or open public debate. It is about sleazy politicians taking a pay off from a sleazy business to expidite a project that could be done on developed land without effecting the undeveloped forest Talisker is attempting to steal from us and our children. But as others have said, it has been openly debated here. I sound like a damn tree hugger and I am about as far from that as possible!
