Sen. Ted Cruz was in Boise Saturday for the Cruz to Victory rally where he addressed the always hot topic of transferring federal land to the states. As we have previously reported, Cruz remains the candidate most committed to this idea. He certainly didn’t equivocate in his most recent remarks.
We need to transfer that land back to the states, or even better, back to the people. The people of Idaho know much better what to do with the land here than does the federal government. There’s no reason for the federal government to be the largest land owner in this country. You know in my home state of Texas, two percent of the state is owned by the federal government. I got to tell you, in Texas we think that’s two percent too much.
