Don't sell public land, voters say



The Center for Western Priorities took the pulse of residents of Western states on U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan's idea of selling federal land to pay down the deficit. Ryan's proposed 2014 budget points to proposals by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, and Rep. Jeff Denham, R-Calif., who have previously endorsed selling public lands to generate revenue, the Center for Western Priorities reports.

The reality is, the agency notes, that people oppose that idea by a margin of more than 2 to 1, and Coloradans oppose it the most, according to results from the 2013 State of the Rockies report, which included a poll of 2,400 voters in Western states.
