    I'm curious how all that privately held land is doing down there in Florida. Apparently it's handled better than the federal stuff.

    I'm sure the state that had record fish kills this past year would be a real winner taking control of national parks.

    I'm also guessing all that costs money.

    And all those invasive species just happened to arrive there from federal actions (not despite)......private industry and citizens had very little role to play in the spread of those iguanas, pythons, and peacock bass, and would be far better at removing them.

    To be fair, federal water management had a hella lot to do with most of those. It is however moving in the right direction.

    You mean "Progressives?" ;) Well maybe not Lincoln, BUT IMO TR would be considered a "Progressive" today.

    The question isn't really set up for a simple answer, but I'd be curious to see who the final decision makers were on those management practices, and how much of a role private industry and lobbyists had in shaping them for their own interests vs. conservation.
