    Sixty-two percent of counties have federal public lands within their boundaries. Counties cannot collect property tax on this land yet must still provide essential services for residents and visitors. The PILT program supports county services, including road and bridge maintenance, law enforcement, search and rescue operations, fire protection, solid waste disposal, and environmental compliance. As Congress determines appropriations levels for FY 2023, counties support full funding of PILT this year and beyond.

    Sixty-two percent of counties have federal public lands within their boundaries. 

    Secure Rural Schools (SRS) is another important issue for county governments. This program compensates national forest counties for the decrease in revenues from the drop in timber harvests on federal lands in the past 30 years. While the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law renewed SRS through FY 2023, national forest counties need a long-term, sustainable revenue-sharing solution.

    As part of these advocacy efforts, NACo will host a PILT briefing on Thursday, September 15, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. EDT. Congressional guest speakers will include:

    • U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.)
    • U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-Wash.)
    • U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah)
    • U.S. Rep. Russ Fulcher (R-Idaho)
    • U.S. Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.)
