EAST WENATCHEE — Douglas County commissioners are defending their support of a state land buy near Grand Coulee, saying they expect the public benefit from new fishing and hunting opportunities to far outweigh lost tax revenue.

Their defense comes in the wake of an April 3 presentation by the Okanogan County Farm Bureau in Withrow about the importance of private property ownership, and how state land purchases have changed Okanogan County. Another presentation is planned in East Wenatchee on May 5.
