Feds Sue California over Sales of Public Lands
May 2018 by Jonathan J. Cooper
They cited concerns that the Trump administration would allow more logging, oil drilling, mining or development on some of the 46 million acres controlled by the federal government in California.
On July 4, we are reminded of the sacrifices our Founding Fathers made to establish this great country of ours, and in that spirit, the Minerals and Mining Advisory Council (MMAC) has created a draft Declaration of Miners.And MMAC has been hard at work writing a bill, with the unwavering support of several members of Congress, to reaffirm the rights of miners operating in traditional mining districts.
• EPA rule blocked
PLF scores another win for property rights
• Bills introduced to stop federal management of greater sage grouse
• WOTUS under review
• Congressional Review Act
• Partial win for miners
• California suction dredging
• Feds continue to push for more public lands
• Idaho suction dredging
In every sense, this was a witch hunt with a preconceived agenda to heavily restrict or outright prohibit most small-scale mining in Oregon.
