Bill Summary

H.R. 3786 directs the Administrator of General Services to convey certain federal property located in the State of Alaska to the municipality of Anchorage, Alaska.

Background

This legislation authorizes the GSA to transfer ownership of nine acres of land located at 400 East Fortieth Street in Anchorage, Alaska currently administered by the National Archives and Records Administration to the City of Anchorage.[1]  The land is currently unused and unneeded by the National Archives.  Sale of the property would occur at fair market value, and net proceeds could be retained by the Archivist for repairs and restorations of Archives facilities.

Cost

CBO estimates that enacting this legislation would have no significant effect on the federal budget.  The collection of sale proceeds would be accelerated.[2]  However, CBO estimates the effect on offsetting receipts over the 2014-2024 period would be negligible.
