Land Disposal Transparency and Efficiency Act (H.R. 2095)
Full Committee Markup January 28, 2014

WASHINGTON, D.C., January 28, 2014 -

Reporting H.R. 2095 Out of Committee (Passed 24-17. View Roll Call Vote)
This bill requires the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to establish an online database for all BLM lands that are available for sale to the public while limiting all future land acquisitions until this database is established. The BLM has this information, and in the year 2014 it is unacceptable that it has not put this information online so it is easily accessible to the public. By centralizing and making public a database of land the BLM has already determined should be disposed of, the bill will help the federal government efficiently sell land it has determined to be excess.

Bishop.040 Amendment (Passed by Voice Vote)
This amendment clarifies that the database will reflect changes in the status lands and issues a report to the Congress on the status and timing for completion of the database once the bill becomes law.
