Background:

Since 1802, Congress has granted to each new state lands to be held in trust and used for support of public schools and other public institutions. Many state trust lands are located in scattered parcels within larger areas managed by federal agencies, mainly the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Forest Service. The creation of new conservation designations typically come with more restrictive management plans that prevent states from utilizing the school trust lands for their intended purposes.
