senate Bill S. 1153

Settling Who Owns the Land Along the Red River

Argument in favor

Offers protections to land owners along the Red River by thwarting claims of ownership by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). Also provides guidelines for determining ownership of the disputed river land between Texas and Oklahoma.

I am appalled that the BLM owns so much land out west. We pay upkeep on it and states cannot receive taxes on it. I do not know what kind of ownership is described in the already deeded areas, but if alodial or fee simple then that should have prevented Uncle Sam or even the states from serious meddling.

Argument opposed

The land in dispute has never been technically owned by anyone in Texas or Oklahoma. Under the BLM’s control, the land can be made accessible to the public, preserved, or used by those who believe they owned it under federal regulation.

BLM preserves the land...doesn't seem to be anything new. My question What changed? What Industry wants to take the land for private use?...

This should be settled by the two states in court. The Feds should stay out of it.
