    It's to compensate for the loss of local revenue, that could be generated if the local government had the ability to use the land for maximally profitable purposes.
    Huh what?

    County governments provide services for private land.  There is no rational basis for simply giving them money.  The Federal government could explicitly contract with the counties for services for Federal land, or they could provide it internally.

    But I really don't see any reason why counties should be allowed to demand payments for a dream.
