Clemson Experimental Forest

Should Clemson allow commercial development of some of the land of the Clemson Experimental Forest?  When this idea was proposed a few years ago there was such an outcry against it that the university administration backed off.  But many people think the university is still making plans in that direction, partly because of pressure not to raise tuition.  Make sure to consider the legal issues and how the university should make policy on such questions.
