  • Proposition 105 and 106 - StateTrust Land
    • The battle between preserving or developing State Trust is heading for a ballot showdown this November. Prop 105 comes from the Legislature, allows 400,000 acres to be saved and limits how the land can be used. It calls for preserving as much as 400,000 acres in state trust land, every acre or parcel of which would have to be approved by the Legislature. Prop 106 is a citizens initiative and would automatically preserve 259,000 acres and set aside an additional 358,000 acres that could be purchased by cities and set aside for conservation. The measure would also revamp the state agency with a board of trustees. If ballot measures are approved at the polls, the one with the most votes wins. Parts of the other plan could become law should the winning measure not have the same provision. We hear from supporters of both propositions.
