BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. LAMBORN. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.

S. 271 authorizes the conveyance of just over an acre of Forest Service land to the city of Wallowa, Oregon. The city originally donated this parcel to the Forest Service in 1936 to allow the Agency to construct a ranger station and other facilities.

The site was used for many decades, but now sits vacant. A local nonprofit organization has proposed developing the facilities as an interpretive site. S. 271 would allow the Forest Service to convey the land back to the city for such development.

I urge my colleagues to support this bill.

I reserve the balance of my time.
