Texas Dial 205f Dispute Cost Land Bureau $300 Million By HARRY WITJSON SHARPE WASHINGTON (UP I — Earnings of the- Bureau of La.nd Management dropped more than S30 million in the past fiscal year due primarily to the government's offshore oil dispute with Louisiana. K Louisiana wins the dispute it will cost the bureau another H30 million in the current fiscal year. a spokesman told the United Press. This is well over half of the bureau's estimated income for the year. The dispute is over who owns submerged lands in area from three to 10.5 miles off the Louisiana coast. The government claims three miles out Is Louisiana's historic boundary. Louisiana claims ratios. The government since 1954 has been selling oil and gas leases beyond the three-mile mark. Just before the bureau pot ready to make another cash haul by leasing more of the submerged lands last May Louisiana brought suit to halt Uic sides. The Suprcrn-c Court now has the dispute. It .said the sales could proceed only if the state and federal governments work out an amicable agreement for interim operations. Thus far no agreement has been reached but negotiations are continuing. Of the ?209 million earned by BLM in the 1956 fiscal year more than Sill million came from bonus bids and first year rentals on outer continental shelf lands off Texas and Louisiana. The drop in Income Is only the second time the bureau's revenue has failed to increase in the past nine years. Because of increased mineral and timber activities on public lands, including drilling on the submerged lands, its income jumped from 514.1 million in 19-15 to a record $239.5 million in 1955. If Louisians should win the dispute its taxpayers could probably look forward to great relief. The estimated $130 million from bonus bids and rentals on the submerged lands for the next year alone amounts to more- than one-third of the state's 53-49 million budget for fiscal 1957. says, adequate planning at (ho start will probably eliminate the necessity of salvaging the neighborhood in later years through costly redevelopment programs.
