“The Bundys vs. The Roosevelts: Should the federal government manage a network of conservation lands?”
On Wednesday, June 22 at 6 pm Rob Fischman, Public land law expert and Mauer Law Professor, will present a talk entitled “The Bundys vs. The Roosevelts: Should the federal government manage a network of conservation lands?”. The highly publicized, armed occupations of federal lands, first by Cliven Bundy in 2014 and later by his sons, Ryan and Ammon Bundy, in 2015-16, pose legal and policy challenges to public land management. Fischman will lead a discussion about those challenges. He will cover the constitutional underpinnings of federal ownership of land and resources. He will also talk about federal legislation that establishes ambitious goals for those federal properties. Finally, he will discuss the policy and management challenges of the future.
