The BLM must have more money than they thought (unless Pickens is paying for everything, as she should.) And the state of New Mexico obviously is in excellent financial/unemployement shape and got too much stimulus money. I'd like to hear how that's going to improve the employment rates and economy.
Unemployment is over 10%, they're arguing about letting tax cuts lapse on the level of taxpayers who actually hire people...the government does not need to be wasting stimulus money on buying land from the Nature Conservancy. I'd cut NM's next round of federal funds, as they obviously have too much.
