State Representative Larry Marek wants to evaluate how the Iowa Department of Natural Resources uses land that it owns. Marek says Iowa lost more than a million dollars on the roughly 44-thousand acres of farm land owned by the DNR. The Riverside Democrat says they could sell off between two and three thousand acres and make roughly six million dollars, while still protecting state parks and reserves.
