Today, Representative K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) made the following statement after the House passed H.R. 1734, the Civilian Property Realignment Act.
"Congress must take bold action and display the courage to do what is right in order to overcome the serious financial challenges facing our nation. I believe H.R. 1734 takes a step in that direction by smartly reducing the size of government through selling or redeveloping underutilized federal properties, increasing the utilization rates of existing federal properties, and expediting the disposal of surplus federal properties."
