Excerpt from Federal Lands and Federal Regulation of Private Property: Oversight Hearing Before the Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests, and Lands of the Committee on Resources, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session
Mr. Pombo. I do not expect you to know everything that has come out of there. Mr. Chairman, I have no further questions.
Mr. Hansen. Thank you, Mr. Pombo. Mr. Hill, in your testimony you state that the Federal agencies have indicated their intent to acquire an additional million acres. Does that represent at all the lands now authorized or just what the agencies highest prior ities are?
Mr. Grace. As far as we understand, when they provided that data to us, that was characterized as lands that they would intend to pursue. I do not know whether it is their highest priorities or it is their total list or whatever, but at least it is lands that they felt that they wanted to pursue in acquisitions.
Mr. Hansen. Does that include the - what was it, acres from Florida that the Administration just announced recently that they intend to acquire?
Mr. Grace. Well, it probably does not because - well, I do not know. We do not know.
