Approximately 66 percent of Utah -- 30 million acres -- is "owned" by the federal government. About 12.7 million acres -- 36 percent of the state -- is set aside for national parks or monuments, conservation areas, wilderness, wild and scenic river corridors, and Forest Service roadless areas while only about 4.3 million acres -- 12 percent of the state -- can be leased for energy development.
