An Analysis of Utah HB148: Comparing Federal and State Land Management Regimes

Authors: Christopher Martin, Randy T Simmons, Ryan M. Yonk

The purpose of this report is to develop a metric for comparing costs across land administration entities with land management responsibilities within the State of Utah. For lands to be transferred to the State under the Transfer of Public Lands Act, we estimate the total per annum cost to the State of Utah. Using the US GAO’s 1997 report Land Ownership: Similarities and Differences in the Management of Selected State and Federal Land Units (GAO/RCED-97-158) as a template for our metrics, we have gathered data from the major land administrating entities in the State of Utah to determine cost per acre and, where applicable, cost per visitor. All entities except the Bureau of Land Management have delivered data, and upon receipt of data from the Bureau of Land Management cost estimations will be forwarded as an amendment to this study.
