Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts spoke with Dana Loesch on ‘No Apologies’ this week to weigh-in on President Joe Biden’s so-called ‘30×30 plan’, labeling the entire operation one big federal “land grab” by un-elected bureaucrats in Washington.
“Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts is on a mission to stop Joe Biden’s 30×30 plan. This is purportedly about fighting climate change and conserving land, but it looks more like a federal land grab,” said Loesch.
“It is absolutely a land grab!” fired-back the Governor. “The 30×30 plan refers to having 30% of the United States’ land and water in a permanent state of natural conservation by the year 2030. About 12% of our land is in that category right now… The problems are numerous.”
“The President has no authority to do this. What about states like Nebraska where 97% of our land is privately owned? Are you planning on confiscating land?” he asked.
“There is a significant percentage of land that’s already federally regulated. The people who best know this land are the farmers and ranchers, not these bureaucrats,” concluded Loesch.
