Duties of the Land Commissioner
The General Land Office administers the use of all state-owned lands. This responsibility includes leasing for gas and oil production, mining, and grazing, and monitoring the environmental quality of public lands and waters. The office also operates the veterans’ land program, in which state bonds are used to underwrite loans to military veterans for land purchases.
The Land Commissioner authorizes exploration and exploitation of public lands, so the Commissioner’s decisions affect hundreds of millions of dollars in economic activity. This also has a significant impact on state government and services, as the General Land Office generates hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties on oil and gas extracted from state lands. – U.T.

First Line of Defense Against EPA
As by now most Americans know the greatest threat to our prosperity and our liberty comes not from outside, but inside our nation as big government bureaucrats continue to flood us with onerous regulations.
While the office of Land Commissioner may be somewhat unfamiliar to you, it is an office that must be held by a staunch conservative who stands for the Rule of Law and the Tenth Amendment.
