    Description

    In the past, Federal land acquisition has been one of the most popular ways to protect outstanding natural resources and provide recreational opportunities. Federal purchase, maintenance, and operation can help take pressure off the State or local budget. Federal involvement also can provide a way for local officials to avoid making some tough decisions about regulating private development. However, several trends are raising obstacles to proposals for establishing new Federal management units in the years ahead.
