Why is the EPA altering state boundaries in Wyoming - and reversing over 100 years of established law? Well, apparently the city of Riverton now falls under the jurisdiction of the Wind River Indian Reservation.
Wyoming Governor Matt Mead warned of the dangers to all Americans of this type of unilateral land redistribution by the EPA: ...My deep concern is about an administrative agency of the federal government altering a state's boundary and going against over 100 years of history and law.
"This should be a concern to all citizens because, if the EPA can unilaterally take land away from a state, where will it stop?" Governor Matt Mead said in a press release on January 6.
"It is outrageous to me that a regulatory agency has proposed changing jurisdictional boundaries established by history and the Courts. I have asked the Attorney General to challenge this decision and defend the existing boundaries of the reservation.

“Why is the EPA altering state boundaries in Wyoming - and reversing over 100 years of established law?”
Because “he won”, that’s why.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
By what authority does an administrative agency transfer American sovereignty away ?
It will stop when the UN's Agenda 21 is fully implemented -- unless the American people wake up and stop it themselves. They are still very much asleep.
...government of the vested aristocracy, by the elite rulers, for their patronized sycophants,shall not perish from the earth.
Because he has a pen.
“This should be a concern to all citizens because, if the EPA can unilaterally take land away from a state, where will it stop?” Governor Matt Mead said in a press release on January 6. “
Geez, you’d think a Governor would have a unilateral of his own to answer with. Instead he sounds like some kind of bystander taking notice and commenting.
Why isn’t he knocking on the door to the Supreme Court?
Texas will be the first to leave the union, and the rest of the red states will gleefully follow. The blue states will be left to struggle on their own.
Is there any current or proposed oil drilling or anything else the EPA doesn’t like going on in that area?
Team BO is, as Charles Krauthammer has so perfectly pointed out, is lawless.
Law is defined moment by moment in this perverted time of cult worship of pretend leaders.
No media questioning is even fathomed in this day, only a repetition of the regime’s talking points.
Riverton is centrally located on the eastern slope of the Wind River Range, where Oil and Gas Drilling is expanding at a quick pace. The Western slope of the Winds has pretty much been all drilled and wells are in place.
This is all about setting the precedent that a federal agency can confiscate property without due process. The fact that it involves native tribes is intended to shut down dissent from the left and make the right look like genocidal maniacs. Everything Obama is doing to give the Feds greater power with no redress fits this “crumbs for the disempowered model.”
Section 3 - New States
New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.
The Congress shall have Power to dispose of and make all needful Rules and Regulations respecting the Territory or other Property belonging to the United States; and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to Prejudice any Claims of the United States, or of any particular State.
If the EPA is taking land of one state and giving it to another state, Article IV Section 3 lays out that the legislatures of the states involved must approve of it, as well as Congres.
Why isn't Wyoming rushing to the Supreme Court to put a stop to this?
