CONGRESSWOMAN ELISE STEFANIK
On Tuesday, October 29, 2013, the House will consider H.R. 2337, the Lake Hill Administrative Site Affordable Housing Act, under a suspension of the rules. The bill was introduced on June 12, 2013, by Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) and referred to the Committee on Natural Resources, which ordered the bill reported by unanimous consent.
H.R. 2337 provides for the conveyance of approximately 40 acres of the Lake Hill Administrative Site, currently managed by the White River National Forest as part of the National Forest System, to Summit County, Colorado. The County would be responsible for the processing and transaction costs associated with the conveyance of the land.
The 386-acre Lake Hill Administrative Site is located near Frisco, Colorado. The parcel in question, currently situated between Interstate 70 and another state highway, is no longer suited to be included as part of the White River National Forest. Summit County would use the land to construct affordable workforce housing.
CBO estimates that implementing H.R. 2337 would increase offsetting receipts by about $5 million. The Forest Service “would be authorized to retain and spend those proceeds, without further appropriation, for capital improvement and maintenance of Forest Service facilities.”
