CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Donald Trump’s apparent lock on the Republican presidential nomination means advocates of large-scale transfers of federal lands to states in the West likely won’t find support in the White House regardless of who wins election this November.

Advisers and the candidates’ prior statements indicate neither Trump nor Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders favor the wholesale transfers of federal lands.

But Trump’s chief policy adviser says Trump does want to see policy changes that give states and local governments more say in land management.

Clovis says Trump supports “shared governance” of federal lands between federal agencies and state and local governments in many circumstances.
