In the spring of 2015, the Montezuma County Commission voted to approve funding for the American Lands Council, a group that advocates for the transfer of Federal public lands to state control. KSJD's Jeff Pope talks with commissioners Larry Don Suckla and James Lambert about their decision to fund the group, and why they believe public lands would be better managed at the state level despite opposition from conservation groups.
