Supporting The Transfer Of Public Lands Act: Klamath County The ‘Tip Of The Spear’ In Oregon

By Dennis Linthicum, Sept. 28, 2014: This month, Klamath County, Oregon, became the “Tip of the Spear” as they are the first county in Oregon to formally support the Transfer of Public Lands Act (TPLA). The TPLA would properly transfer federal land jurisdiction to the respective state bodies. The Board of County Commissioners issued a proclamation expressing the county’s support for the full and present implementation of the Transfer of Public Lands Act. ✧ In essence, the TPLA would codify independent and sovereign control over the public lands within respective state borders.

These managerial and operational changes would positively impact state and county economic opportunities while improving habitat management and reducing the danger from wildfires and insect infestation.
