BOX ELDER UTAH LAND CONVEYANCE ACT -- (House of Representatives - February 23, 2009)

Ms. BORDALLO. Mr. Speaker, I move to suspend the rules and pass the bill (H.R. 601) to provide for the conveyance of parcels of land to Mantua, Box Elder County, Utah.

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. BORDALLO. Mr. Speaker, H.R. 601, introduced by Representative Bishop of Utah, requires the Secretary of Agriculture to convey without consideration approximately 31.5 acres of National Forest System land in the Wasatch-Cache National Forest in Utah to the town of Mantua, Utah. The conveyed land will be used by the town of Mantua to develop a new town cemetery, a new town hall and fire station, an elementary school, a court, law enforcement facilities, and a memorial park.

Mr. Speaker, this bill passed the House in the 110th Congress. Also in the last Congress, our committee amended that measure to require that, as a condition of the conveyance, the town of Mantua shall use the land for public purposes only, and the land shall revert to the Secretary if used for another purpose, and that requirement is included in H.R. 601 as well. We have no objections to H.R. 601.

I reserve the balance of my time.

Ms. BORDALLO. Mr. Speaker, I have no additional requests for time and would inquire of the minority whether they have any additional speakers.

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. BORDALLO. Mr. Speaker, I again urge Members to support the bill, and I yield back the balance of my time.

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. BORDALLO. Mr. Speaker, on that I demand the yeas and nays.
