John Freemuth Quoted by The Verge

John Freemuth was quoted in a story by The Verge titled “Inside the GOP’s unpopular plan to sell off public wilderness”. Freemuth said that sometimes, when public lands get too expensive to manage, selling for a profit becomes more appealing. For instance: “Idaho, for example, makes money by harvesting timber on state land, Freemuth said. But Idaho also has sold 41 percent of its land — 1.7 million acres — to timber companies, cattle ranchers, private clubs and homeowners since it became a state in 1890.” Read the full story here.
