The local economic stability package in the Klamath Basin Restoration Agreement includes acquisition of the privately owned 92,000-acre Mazama Forest by the Klamath Tribes.

Opponents mischaracterize this as an unfair handout to the Tribes. I am frustrated that some opponents of the KBRA express the view that, "Because you willingly sold your reservation land during termination and were paid for it, how can you justify getting land back free at taxpayer expense."
