Federal Lands: A Compendium
This Compendium contains a great deal of information on federal lands and consists of topics including federal land ownership; energy projects on federal lands; crude oil production; the national forest system roadless area initiatives; compensating state and local governments for the tax-exempt status of federal lands meaning what is fair and consistent. Also included is information about hunting, fishing, recreational shooting, grazing fees, and other wildlife measures on federal lands.
Conflicting public values concerning federal lands raise many questions and issues: how much land the federal government should own, how managers should balance conflicting uses and coordinate efforts to address large-scale impacts (such as climate change), whether Congress should protect specific areas, and when and how agencies should collect and distribute fees for land and resource uses.
Congress continues to examine these questions— particularly in assessing the various uses that might be made of the federal lands—through legislative proposals, program oversight, and annual appropriations for the four major federal land management agencies: the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), National Park Service (NPS), and Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) in the Department of the Interior, and the Forest Service (FS) in the Department of Agriculture. These agencies have differing mandates, missions, and levels or degrees of resource protection on the lands they administer.
