About the Federal Land Action Group

In April 2015, Rep. Chris Stewart (UT-2) and Chariman Rob Bishop (UT-1) launched the Federal Land Action Group, a congressional team that will develop a legislative framework for transferring public lands to local ownership and control.

This Group, chaired by Rep. Stewart, will build on the work started by Utah and other states in recent years. “The federal government has been a lousy landlord for western states and we simply think the states can do it better,” Stewart said. “If we want healthier forests, better access to public lands, more consistent funding for public education and more reliable energy development, it makes sense to have local control.”

Rep. Bishop, Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, said, “This group will explore legal and historical background in order to determine the best congressional action needed to return these lands to the rightful owners. We have assembled a strong team of lawmakers, and I look forward to formulating a plan that reminds the federal government it should leave the job of land management to those who know best.”

The Federal Land Action Group will hold a series of forums with experts on public lands policy, with the goal of introducing transfer legislation.

Members of the Group include:

  • Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) - Chairman of the Federal Land Action Group
  • Rep. Rob Bishop (R-Utah) - Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee
  • Representative Mark Amodei (R-Nev.)
  • Representative Diane Black (R-Tenn.)
  • Representative Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.)
  • Representative Cresent Hardy (R-Nev.)
  • Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-WY)
  • Representative Raul Labrador (R-Idaho)
