This actually answers my long-burning question as to why Texas is one of the few "Western" states without really any national parks. The federal government decided to keep the land from other states but they never really had any land in Texas to begin with, since Texas was admitted as a state from the beginning (and already largely settled).

Great job, and thank you, personally. As a guy from southern Idaho this has proven difficult to explain clearly to my friends in Baltimore, and Queens. It also is no excuse for the behavior of those goons who occupied the Malheur NWR a couple years back. I spend a lot of time on Federal land in ID, eastern OR and NV, it is every bit as byzantine in practice as is presented in this video.

Just FYI, the Clinton administration forced Military bases to comply with everything from the EPA to State law in regards to what they can and can't do on their bases. The comment about the housing is incorrect. In the 90's the military was forced to begin condemning houses with asbestos or houses that fell outside the respective states building codes. By the new millennium it worked out great for those of us stuck in Twentynine-Palms. The old Fred Flintstone houses had been torn down and we got nice homes that an average person in California would have to have paid a couple of million dollars for and the rest of average Americans would have paid about 120K to 200K depending on what state you live in. The Military no longer has absolute power on their bases and in some cases they have huge training areas they can no longer utilize becuase endangered species live on those ranges.

No, they are like states in terms of ownership. They just have a complicated relationship to the rest of the US as it isn't well defined on a piece of paper.

Constitution only allows the federal government to own land for military bases or post offices. If it's not one of those tow then they can just shove it.
Aquitale - Day ago
This is a very fascinating claim, and I would love to believe this and share this news. Could you perhaps site where in the constitution it says this? If so I and so many others could actually argue on this point. I'm sorry I don't know where it says this, as when I checked I found no such thing. But would love to believe this. Thanks

Being a Californian, I’m glad that the coastline is Federal land, so that a few really rich people cannot keep everyone from using the beaches. But oh how they try! They lock beach access gates, they put up rock barricades to make it seem like private property, they use every trick in the book. 😡.

This is more of a political view on the federal land in the west. I grew up in Idaho, and everyone I knew didn't mind how the land was controlled by the Forest Service/National Parks/Fish & Wildlife/Bureau of Land Management

Did you know they gave away land as late as the 1960's. Maybe later. I just know about a book from the 60's that talks about "homesteading". I think they might still do it in Alaska

A huge downside to so much federal ownership in Western states: much of the land could be economically viable (thanks to new innovations unavailable at the time of the Homestead Act) & could offset housing crisis if feds back off & let local communities develop.

TL;DR: 5:24 and "the best way to think about Federal Land is that while it may be in a state, it is not of the state."

Not sure who else may have already chimed in on this - but some eastern states/municipalities that are more land poor/dense deal with PILOT in another way, as it is often a way local property taxes are reimbursed for things like hospitals, state universities, and other organizations that are exempt from paying local property taxes. PILOT is annoying for EVERYONE.
