    Generate tax revenue? Sounds like they are going to sieze federal land and sell it to individuals.
    That is NOT a proper use of eminent domain.

    Then what is a proper use of eminent domain? Stealing from private citizens to give to the government? Turn about is fair play.

    What I find amusing is the audacity of a state to think that they can seize federal land in the first place.

    The audacity was in the feds seizing it to begin with.

    What's the point of having states?
