News Flash:  Utah H.B. 142 and An Analysis of a Transfer of Federal Lands to the State of Utah

H.B. 142 was enacted in 2013 to require a study and economic analysis of the proposed land transfer of 31.2 million acres currently managed by the federal government to the state of Utah. A collaborative study between three state universities: the University of Utah, Bureau of Economic and Business Research; Utah State University; and Weber State University provides information about the current uses of land, the economic effects and noneconomic benefits of those uses, and the ramifications and impacts to the state assuming the lands are transferred. It also describes the programs and budgets of, and revenues generated by, the federal agencies that now manage the lands. Click here to learn more.
