CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Gov. Matt Mead says state military officials won’t try to expand a central Wyoming training site if ranchers currently using the land object.

The Associated Press reports that Mead said Monday it could be years or decades before any decisions are made about the disposition of land managed by the federal Bureau of Land Management around Camp Guernsey outside Wheatland.

The BLM has expressed interest in giving up thousands of acres around Camp Guernsey, and the Wyoming Military Department says it’s interested in getting control of all the land within its boundaries and smoothing out some jagged boundaries.

Some nearby ranchers have expressed fears the military would take over BLM land they lease. Mead says that won’t happen if the ranchers object.

Mead spoke at a meeting in Wheatland.
