Guest: Brigham Daniels, PhD, Professor of Environmental and Natural Resources Law at BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School The occupation of a national wildlife area in Oregon by a small armed group is now in its second week. The leader of the group – Ammon Bundy – says they will not leave until there is a plan in place to transfer millions of acres of federal land in the area to local control.
