Liberty on Tap since 1984
An article by Bonner Cohen, forthcoming in the May issue of Environment & Climate News, reports:
"Fed up with the federal government locking up state lands rich in economically productive natural resources, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R) has signed a bill authorizing the state to use eminent domain to seize federal lands and open them up for energy production."
Now, I'm generally not a big fan of eminent domain, but I LOVE the idea of a state government using that against the federal government!
Is there some slippery slope I'm missing here?
