Sen. Brown's Federal Property Disposal Amendment Passes Committee

Press Release

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee today passed an amendment proposed by U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-MA), in conjunction with Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Tom Carper (D-DE), which would provide for a top-to-bottom review and disposal process for the federal government's 45,000 underutilized and excess properties that cost taxpayers over $1.7 billion per year.

"Reform is long overdue for the broken federal property disposal process," said Senator Brown. "Over the past year, we have worked to find a bipartisan, bicameral solution to streamline the bureaucracy and ensure that our vast federal property portfolio is managed in the best interest of the taxpayers. Today's committee passage is a step forward and it means our reform bill is much closer to becoming law."

The legislation was introduced prior to the committee meeting today, and is based in part on Senator Brown's Civilian Property Realignment Act (S.2232), which was introduced with Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) in March 2012.
