Sen. Paul Continues Push to Sell Land in Daniel Boone Nat’l Forest

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul hasn’t given up on a proposal to have the government sell some land in the Daniel Boone National Forest in McCreary County for potential commercial development.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the Kentucky Republican held a meeting in McCreary County on Thursday to talk about the costs of federal land ownership.

Paul’s office says the meeting’s purpose included looking at how to ensure affected communities have the maximum opportunity to create jobs. Paul put forth a measure in February aimed at getting the government to sell some of that land. The Senate didn’t approve the measure.
