Eric Baxter, senior counsel for the Becket Fund, told The Farmington Daily Times that the court was wrong to put additional conditions on the federal Mineral Lands Leasing Act funding.
“I think the Supreme Court erred in concluding that these were funds from state land and that it should recognize they are federal dollars that are being used in accordance with federal mandate,” Baxter said. “Any efforts to cut off certain categories of people from using those funds would be a violation of the federal constitution.”
