In Idaho, transfer legislation threatens 101 river runs, 163 climbing areas, and 1946 miles of mountain biking trails. The map below shows some of the most important recreational resources that could be disposed of, transferred, or sold. 

Along with House a resolution demanding land from the federal government, Idaho legislators passed another bill initiating a two year study of the idea. The study group concluded yet more study was necessary, at the public’s expense. Thankfully, a bill to join Utah’s band of states failed. The following bills have been introduced in the Idaho statehouse:

...authorizing the Legislative Council to appoint a committee to undertake and complete a study for the State of Idaho to acquire title to and control of public lands now controlled by the federal government.
— Senate Concurrent Resolution 108
