To clarify, the federal government DOES have the right to own property; this is stated in the Constitution. Article 4, Section 3, Clause 2 (also known as the Territory Clause) : “The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.”
A poster keeps mentioning that the land in question is actually owned by the State, therefore the BLM just ‘administers’ the land, but this is not the case. The majority of federal land is under proprietary jurisdiction- meaning that while the federal government owns it, the State assumes responsibility for law enforcement of that land. The BLM is responsible for the management of the land it owns- which includes managing programs for visitors, range cattle, hunting/fishing/foraging, mineral extraction, timber sales, cultural resource management, natural resource management and much more. Furthermore, attempting to pay the County for grazing permits is like trying to give your rent check to the grocery store. Silly.
