Land and Water HA-6-1-18
The U.S. has 2.3 billion acres of land. Only 66 million acres are considered developed lands. This amounts to 3 percent of the land area in the U.S., yet this small land base is home to 75 percent of the population. Developed and rural residential make up 139 million acres, or 6.1 percent of total land area in the U.S. About 349 million acres in the U.S. are planted for crops. Some 788 million acres, or 41.4 percent of the U. S. excluding Alaska, are grazed by livestock. Forest lands comprise 747 million acres. The Interior Department (ID) holds a total of 486 million acres – 55 million BIA, 247 million BLM, 6.6 million Bureau of Reclamation, 90 million FWS, and 87 million acres NPS - 268 million with 181 million acres of National Forests slashed and burned by the FS. DoD holds 30 million acres, US Army Corp of Engineers 7.8 million acres. The federal government owns a total of 649 million acres, not including 55 million acres held by tribal governments. States own 180 million acres. Cities own more than 1.5 million acres.

$140 billion FY 18 is more than enough to pay for USDA outlays of $124 billion or $128 billion if the President wants to stop obstructing the 3% annual food stamp program spending growth. $140 billion leaves the USDA with a comfortable margin of $16 billion or $12.4 billion undistributed offsetting receipts, respectively. Lower cost estimates of the President regarding USDA outlays are justified by the fact that, the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) and Rural Business Cooperative (RBC) are financed by off-budget congressional budget authority, interest on farm loans and electricity revenues, respectively, and should not be accounted for in the USDA outlay table. In FY 19, after FY 18 FS park dues, total USDA outlays, 2.75% more than FY 18, without the FS, are estimated to be $138.4 billion FY 19.

The President's FY 18 Interior budget goes down from $13.3 billion FY 17 to $11.7 billion, FY 18. Interior 2.5% growth to FY 18 is estimated to $19.8 billion budget authority minus $11.2 billion revenues, for total outlays of $8.6 billion, minus federal outlays of $11.7 billion equals. $3.1 billion undistributed offsetting receipts.
