Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) announced Monday that the Department of the Interior is distributing more than $29.69 million to eligible local governments throughout Alaska.

DOI data shows for the 2017 fiscal year, Jackson County will receive $951,998, Josephine County will receive $885,422 and Klamath County will receive $823,456.

"It's an attempt by Congress to reimburse counties at least in part for the loss of revenue because of the federal lands not being subject to property taxes", Blattie said.

PILT was funded this year at levels comparable to last as part of the May omnibus deal that funds the federal government through the end of September.

"The PILT program is critical for communities across Colorado that rely on these funds for services like road maintenance and law enforcement", Bennet said in the release. It pays for services such as public safety, schools and roads in communities containing national parks, national forests and other public lands. Funding for the payments comes from the almost $9 billion in annual revenue the Department of Interior collects from commercial activities on federal lands, including energy development, livestock grazing and timber harvests.

Despite having nearly 1.5 million acres of federal lands, the less populated Rio Blanco County will receive about $553,000. More than 73 percent of Ravalli County's land mass is made up of federal ground. Delta County will receive nearly $710,000 for more than 400,000 acres.
