    How many acres of federal land in your state has been sold or is being sold to foreign countries?

      I have seen media reports of Governors selling federal lands of their states to China

      That's a darn good question! I would guess so much more then we would imagine being that a lot of our funds comes from overseas. A lot of our banks here in the us are held up from foreign funds and I found that out from working for 1 of the largest banks for 10 yrs.

      Is it being sold to foreign countries, or is it being sold to foreign private citizens?

    I have often wondered that myself, but since I am not that big into politics, I am not sure. I do remember seeing something about it when my hubby was watching YouTube videos. That is an interesting question to think about.

    Can a Governor of a state sell federal land? I would think you actually have to own something to sell it.

      Repairguy,  you must remember, that ole outdated manual is obsolete.

      We apparently have a new one,  just we haven't received our copy as yet.
      I think the reason is, rules are being re-written.
