President Biden issued an executive order shortly after taking office in January 2021 known as the 30 x 30 Plan (link below). The plan outlines the Administration’s goal to control 30 percent of the U.S. land and 30 percent of the U.S. water rights by the year 2030. Recently, Nebraska Governor, Pete Ricketts, was in York to discuss the plan.
Governor Ricketts stated that there are lots of unknowns about the plan. In a document issued in May 2021, entitled America the Beautiful, President Biden and his Administration lay out what we do know about the plan to attain their goal of owning 30 percent of the land and water of America.
A full copy of the America the Beautiful report can be found on the Governor’s website at: https://www.doi.gov/sites/doi.gov/files/report-conserving-and-restoring-america-the-beautiful-2021.pdf
In response, on June 24, 2021, Governor Ricketts issued his own executive order called Stop 30 x 30 – Protect Our Land & Water. It can be found at: http://govdocs.nebraska.gov/docs/pilot/pubs/eofiles/21-08.pdf
