"I regret the need to file yet another lawsuit against the state of California today", Attorney General Jeff Sessionssaid in a statement on the filing of the suit.

Now President Trump is turning the tables on the Golden State #Resistance. The deed is how an owner can borrow money or get insurance for the land because it makes the sale public.
The federal government owns about 640 million acres of land in the USA (28 percent of all land). "Our public lands should not be on the auction block to the highest bidder", Becerra said. We blaze trails, we innovate, and we engage in smart stewardship of our precious public lands. "We are simply asking that before any sell-off occurs, the state be given an opportunity to preserve them. And that's not right".
The bill was designed in direct opposition to the Trump administration's policy approach to federal land and motivated by a fear of losing federally designated national parks and wilderness.

Without a recorded deed many banks will not lend money to buy or develop the property and a purchaser can not get title insurance, making a recorded deed much more valuable than an unrecorded deed.

A person who does record a deed in violation of the law could be fined up to $5,000. And finally, because the requirement is merely a "right of first refusal", it should not directly affect the price at which the federal government can sell land.
