The GRAZING IMPROVEMENT ACT:  To amend the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 to improve the management of grazing leases and permits, and for other purposes.

“When an interest group–let’s say the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association–supports a bill because it will “reduce the paperwork backlog,” you can pretty much guarantee that another group–let’s say American taxpayers–are poised to be fleeced.

The legislation under review is the Grazing Improvement Act of 2013. Sponsored by Senator John Barrasso (R-WY), the bill recently left the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and is headed to the Senate floor for a vote. Its primary intention is to amend the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 in order to extend the renewal term for public land grazing permits and leases from ten to twenty years.”

    You the government for the people are just taking every thing from us and the mustang and giving it to cattle, the land belongs to the horses and the water rights. I hate being snowed by you. You are the ones who will ruin the land not the horses.
