Helping Out Northern California

Wally has a point here.
“In my home state of California, close to half of the land area is owned by the federal government,” he said. “And in my district that number is considerably larger. In one of my counties nearly ninety percent of the land is under federal ownership. This large federal presence has placed the counties I represent at a severe economic disadvantage. Acreage that would normally be privately owned, and therefore generating tax revenue to help fund essential local services, is instead locked away by the federal government.”
