I support S. 130: Powell Shooting Range Land Conveyance Act because this is less federal tax money being spent to support land which should be privately or state owned and supported. Federal lands are showing signs of less maintenance due to lack of care and funds and are therefore more susceptible to fires and tree and wildlife disease.

I oppose S. 130: Powell Shooting Range Land Conveyance Act because...it's unclear if the club operating there is public or private. Giving US government land away where private parties benefit is not right. It the town owns the club and any profit from it goes to the town treasury then I would be for it but not if it is going to some situation where some person or persons get to profit from it (beyond being employees at the club).

I oppose S. 130: Powell Shooting Range Land Conveyance Act because...I don't believe this an appropriate use of the land. The current shooting range is used by private clubs, who owns the Powell Shooting range, and where does the proceeds go. I also believe these type of bills are a waste of Congressional time. There are far more pressing matters to attend to.

I oppose S. 130 ("A bill to require the Secretary of the Interior to convey certain Federal land to") because federal land has been set aside for the use of all people, not just Republicans, who seem to wish to give it away or destroy it through drilling or mining. Federal lands are among the few places where native wildlife can exist and should be left that way. Please oppose this and any similar measure. Thanks.

Congress should not make legislation concerning single individuals or entities. This is discriminatory and smacks of favoritism. Rather than worrying themselves with issues affecting specific people, they should be working to resolve issues which affect the American people as a whole.
