California County Reclaims Roads from Feds

Following the footsteps of Utah, which used eminent domain to reclaim Escalante.

...Now a new perspective to America's rebellion against the power of the federal bureaucracy has been added with a vote by supervisors in one California county to reopen county roads that had been shut down by the Bureau of Land Management.

According to a report from the Blueribbon Coalition, which advocates for public use of public property in the region, the vote came yesterday at a meeting of the San Benito County board of supervisors.

By a 4-0 vote, the board ordered reopened about 25 miles of county roads that are within an area closed off to the public by the BLM in a 2008 decision.

BLM's making burp-noises, but is kinda surprised.
