In the past five to ten years, Utah and Alaska in particular have filed thousands of RS 2477 claims—most of them bogus—to prevent or overthrow the protection of lands in wilderness, national parks and national wildlife refuges.
These lands were reserved for the special public use of protection within the US National Forest system in 1906 and 1907 so the State of Utah would have to prove that the construction of these highways occurred between 1866 when the law was passed and 1906 when the land was reserved.
The Utah Legislature appropriated millions of dollars to assist counties to compile RS 2477 claims but even with lavish funding, no critical standards appear to have been applied.
