    (CEDAR CITY, Utah) - (+VIDEO) - With the Utah Legislature in session for 2014, an upcoming debate about Utah's federally held lands will be discussed. Community Window features Iron County Commissioner David Miller to learn more about this topic of the transfer of public lands and how it affects citizens in Southern Utah.

    Miller advocates for the people closest to the area to manage the natural resources which can cost less and be more effective. He draws a correlation from a joint coalition focusing on the endangered species Utah Prairie Dog, and the idea of encouraging local management of public lands.

    Representatives from different factions gathered at the Utah Prairie Dog Summit held on March 15, 2013 in Cedar City. Miller said, that the goal was two fold--first, to respect private property rights and second, to accomplish the goal of recovering the Utah Prairie Dog by looking for solutions instead of divisions.

    "In a nine-month time frame, we took this challenge literally and provided a solution which would otherwise have cost $130 million and up to 30 years which was proposed; and we did it with virtually no cost, and again, in nine months," Miller said.

    You have already sent 660,000 pounds of Wildhorse meat to Canada in 2013 for slaughter as young as two years old that is nearly 300 tons. We are not going away, wait until we get half of Ameerica off Beef, then you can complain. Meico is taking at lwast 200 horses a day over the boader for slaughter. You have crossed the libe.. Enact the Safe Act to protect OUR WILD HORSES..Funny.. Not one Horse Advocate there in that pro Beef meeting and then to top it off, steel the land away from us.. the American People.. Not going to happen..
