    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.

    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!

    HA-Been in Utah too many years? Takes all the drama outa it?! If it read, "Used Veggie Ole from Mexi-Fry Cooks Revolutionizes Condom Lubricants For Porn Industry" would you be surprised if Utah poli's got behind every Beto's to make distribution of used cooking oil without boundaries in Utardia? Probably make it a super-food in Utah County!

    Nah, it's those fucking Canadians I can't stand. Too bad Bush wasn't still in office, I'm sure we could find some weapons of mass assfucking to justify an attack.

    I really think if they took this Ski-Ride-Dick-connect thing multi-level they'd really have something here.
