BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

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

S. 270 will convey to the city of La Pine and Deschutes County, Oregon, 910 acres in three parcels and requires that the land be used only for purposes consistent with the Recreation and Public Purposes Act. The conveyances would be subject to valid existing rights and will address the city's and county's need for existing land.

One parcel of 750 acres will be used by the county to accommodate the expansion of its wastewater treatment facilities. The county will also use 150 acres to develop rodeo grounds and allow for the future development of ball fields, parks, and recreation facilities. A parcel of 10 acres in the center of La Pine will continue to be used for the public library and additional open space use.

Finally, the bill requires the county to pay all administrative costs associated with the transfer.

I urge support for the bill, and I reserve the balance of my time.
