When is a Deal No Longer a Deal?


Author(s):
Abstract:
Railroads have enabled the public to access resources at a faster pace, but this service is being abandoned rapidly. Consequently, management dilemmas are arising between land developments versus natural habitat protection. One suggestion is for Congress to introduce legislation that transfers back to federal ownership a certain amount of forest land for every mile of railroad track abandoned.
