Enzi Bill Sends Federal Land Back to Powell

After years of attempting to obtain federal land that houses its shooting range, the Powell Recreation District should soon be the owners of the property they have operated for years.

In June, the Senate passed S.130, introduced by U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., that would secure the land transfer and the House Tuesday passed the bill by a vote of 408-1. The only step left is for President Obama to sign the bill and he has given Enzi no indication that he wouldn’t sign it.

Those involved in the land transfer process have agreed that the current use of the land as a shooting range is the best option, according to Enzi. The Bureau of Land Management will turn over the land to the Powell Recreation District once the bill is signed into law by President Obama.

Senator John Barrasso, R-Wyo. is a co-sponsor of this bill and Representative Lummis, R-Wyo., urged the House Natural Resources Committee to pass the bill, which it did July 24.
