Wasden: ‘The ultimate answer’

After a judge's ruling today to grant the preliminary injunction he sought against the state Department of Lands, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said, "We welcome the court's decision. I certainly look forward to working with my colleagues on the Land Board to try and resolve these issues."

Asked about the board's upcoming meeting on Tuesday - at which a plan to move away from state ownership of ground on which private owners build and own cabins already is on the agenda - Wasden said, "If we had unity of title, we wouldn't be having the kind of problems that we've been having." He noted that every member of the state Land Board supported moving that direction. "That's the ultimate answer," he said. But he noted that there likely will be a number of preliminary steps before the state can get there.
