We the undersigned petitioners request our representatives in Congress Assembled to take all necessary and effective measures to repeal the Federal Land Policy Management Act of 1976 and immediately end the Federal occupation of land in twelve Western States and to terminate its control over the majority of the land which it currently administers in Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, and Hawaii.

We further demand the immediate return by sale, transfer, or otherwise of all existing Public Lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management in these twelve States wherever appropriate to the States, or to the Counties wherein the land is located, or to the people to use as they see fit in accordance with existing State and local land use laws.
