Public Land Jurisdiction web site dedication


The PLJ web site is dedicated to helping educate the general public and elected representatives across the United States regarding legislative jurisdiction on federally managed public lands.   This topic is considered “controversial” by some representatives in western states.  Jurisdiction on federal lands is not controversial, its 100% documented and completely verifiable.  The last Inventory Report on Jurisdictional Status of Federal Areas within the States was in 1962.  It was the only federal inventory report ever procured and we all should be thanking President Eisenhower for the report.
