Bill Summary

H.R. 838 directs the Attorney General to convey to Miami Dade College in Miami-Dade County, Florida, a parcel of land held by the Bureau of Prisons for a new educational building that includes a parking area with designated parking spaces for the Bureau of Prisons.


Both the Bureau of Prisons and Miami-Dade College are in agreement regarding this land conveyance. Because the land in question is held by the Bureau of Prisons, Congressional approval is required to grant the land to Miami-Dade College.
