Biden plan to sell land leases for conservation gets pushback


A plan by the Biden administration to sell land leases to conservation groups is getting opposition on Norman hall. Biden administration officials have sought to dispel worries they want to exclude oil drilling livestock raising and other activities from vast government on land. The effort follows pushback from Republicans and ranchers over a contentious proposal to put conservation on equal footing with industry, the proposal would allow conservationists and others to lease federally owned land to restore it much the same way oil companies by leases to drill and ranches pay to graze cattle. Lisa's could also be bought on behalf of companies such as oil drillers who want to offset damage to public land by restoring acreage elsewhere. Norman hall, Washington
