Statement on Signing the
Arizona Lands Transfer Bill
November 9, 1987
am reluctantly signing H.R. 1366, an act to provide for the transfer of certain
lands in the State of Arizona and for other purposes.
Because of the special conditions in Payson, I am signing this bill. I wish to
make it clear that this is an exception and should not be considered a
precedent for other cases. The people of this country are entitled to receive
full value for the disposal of their Federal lands, and I intend to do what I
can to achieve this result.
Note: H.R. 1366,
approved November 9, was assigned Public Law No. 100 - 157.
