Concerning conveyances of federal public lands in the state of Washington (Ranker, Palumbo, Carlyle)

States that it is the policy of the state to discourage conveyances that transfer ownership of federal public lands in the state from the federal government. Requires the board of natural resources, the fish and wildlife commission, the parks and recreation commission, the director of the department of archaeology and historic preservation, and the recreation and conservation funding board to undertake efforts to protect against a future unauthorized conveyance or repeal of a federal public land designation including a change in use, classification, or legal status of lands designated as federal monuments under the federal antiquities act.
