    How does this work in relation to state law?
    Federal Law applies across the entire USA. State Law applies to within each state; does state law apply on federal land within a state?

    One interesting and under discussed dynamic in the State Land vs. Federal Land argument is local management. Many Federal Lands (BLM>USFS>NPS) are managed by local offices that are staffed by state locals; so while the overall law making is a federal representative in Washington DC, the manager who carries out the actual work is a local of the state and may be partial to the state's wants and needs.
    Like a small town sheriff: The laws are made high up in the capitol city hundreds of miles away but the guy who chooses when and who to apply the laws to may be a local "good-ol-boy" sheriff who's friends never seem to be on the wrong side of the law as much as the rapscallion Duke Boys who do the same thing and get punished for it.

    • Liam Griffin
      Liam Griffin 2 kun oldin

      xxxtentacion The looming U.S. Civil War delayed the sale (of Alaska), but after the war, Secretary of State William Seward quickly took up a renewed Russian offer and on March 30, 1867, agreed to a proposal from Russian Minister in Washington, Edouard de Stoeckl, to purchase Alaska for $7.2 million. (Which is pretty cheap for all that oil we found under it)

    The U.S. in this case, is the federal corporation In the District of Columbia, also known as USDC or the UNITED STATES. It was created by the congressional act of 1871. Also see 28 USC 3002 (15) “United States” means- (A) a Federal corporation. Wait what ???????

    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.
