if Romney wins there isn't much stopping this from happening because the right wing wacko congress will be calling the shots for at least 4 years. The Tea Party wackos have all clearly stated they don't wan't the fed controlling the BLM and NAt Forests in their states, they want it ceded to the states. Of course they can't afford to manage this land on there own so the plan would be to start selling it off to the highest bidder. At that point the NO TRESSPASSING signs go up and the public is locked out for good.
