The debate over management of public lands is not a new issue. It is becoming more top of mind for citizens though; particularly in rural communities who are often hit hardest by decisions that have a huge impact on daily lives.
We were at a debate on the topic of public lands a little over a month ago and the more we thought about how to best share that story it became apparent that we just had to bring as much of the debate to you the viewer as possible. In order to make the show fit into our half-hour window we did remove the opening statements in order to watch the entire discussion. You can see the whole debate at this link:
or on the Salt Lake Tribune’s Site:

This program is a little different in that we are simply providing you with the debate to watch. As you view the program I would suggest thinking about how public lands impact your life.
Do you recreate ?
Do you eat meat ?
Do you use energy ?
Do you live in a house ?
Okay these are some ridiculous questions but in one way or another you are probably impacted by the public lands that make up nearly 67% of the state of Utah.
