Our state Senate voted to allow our Legislature to oversee any proposals for selling state land and state parks. The DNR has been holding meetings trying to figure out what land to sell, what to keep, and even what to buy. Somebody has to watch what is going on here. Otherwise we have a situation where the fox is guarding the chicken house. I previously wrote about my thoughts on Michigan selling off state parks so I won't go into that again. I am glad that any proposals to sell off state land or state parks must face a public hearing. Although, perhaps the public hearing won't have much bearing on the outcome. Maybe it is just the Legislature throwing us a bone.
