CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead says he hasn’t seen a proposal of what lands the federal government will offer to swap for state in holdings in Grand Teton National Park but doesn’t want to wait years to resolve the issue.

Mead told reporters Monday that he talked last week with U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell when she was in Wyoming to tour the state-owned areas within Grand Teton.

The federal government had agreed a few years ago to a four-phase, $107 million purchase of the nearly 1,300 acres of state-owned lands within the park.

But federal officials now say they don’t have the money to consummate the deal.
