Utah State Representative Ken Ivory has been a leader in the pursuit of fiscal self-reliance in Utah, with regard to both issues—federal fund transfers and land ownership. Ivory was a primary sponsor of the Financial Ready Utah bills, as well as the 2012 Transfer of Public Lands Act, which establishes a framework for the transfer of certain federal lands to the state of Utah in the coming years. Ivory also serves as president of the American Lands Council (www.AmericanLandsCouncil.org), a nonprofit composed of state officials, local governments, businesses, organizations and individuals interested in advancing the cause of local control of land access, land use and land ownership.
Earlier this month, Reason Foundation Director of Government Reform Leonard Gilroy interviewed Rep. Ivory on the rationale behind the Financial Ready Utah bills and the Transfer of Public Lands Act, the history of federal control of western lands, and much more.
