WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX), Chairman of the House Committee on Rules, released the following statement applauding the passage of a measure that requires the Bureau of Land Management to perform a survey on the 116-mile stretch of contested land in between Oklahoma and Texas along the Red River:
"For nearly a century ranchers, farmers, and families along the Red River have lived in a cloud of uncertainty because of the Bureau of Land Management’s failure to appropriately determine the boundary between public and private land. As a result Texans have been subject to ridiculous and baseless land grabs by federal agencies. Many of these families have been on this land for generations and it is critical that we take active measures to provide them with the certainty they need so they can rightfully protect their land."
