WASHINGTON - After massive public outcry, Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) announced late Wednesday night on Instagram that he was withdrawing his bill to sell “excess” public lands. The bill, H.R. 621, would have required the federal government to sell 3.3 million acres of federal public lands in 10 western states.
