New Enhanced Federal Property Disposal Bill Raises Concern Among Preservationists
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - National Trust for Historic Preservation, preservation leglislation and policy

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee passed a bill (H.R.5787) on May 8th to make it easier for federal agencies to dispose of excess property. Passed by unanimous voice vote, H.R. 5787 would increase incentives for the federal government to sell what the Office of Management and Budget has estimated as $18 billion worth of unneeded property.

However, the committee also unanimously approved a substitute amendment that requires agencies to develop plans for real property disposal and makes the General Services Administration (GSA) responsible for developing and issuing guidance on how agencies should identify and dispose of excess property. Under the substitute amendment, GSA would be required to report to oversight committees on this regulatory aspect of the property disposal process.

The National Trust will monitor the status of this bill for its potential to dispose of surplus government property – including historic buildings – without the proper stewardship considerations intact.
