On Monday, July 09, 2012, the House is scheduled to consider S. 2061, the Former Charleston Naval Base Land Exchange Act of 2012, under a suspension of the rules requiring a two-thirds majority vote for approval. The bill was introduced on February 1, 2012, by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. S. 2061 was approved by the Senate on June 5, 2012 by unanimous consent.
S. 2061 would authorize the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) to exchange specified parcels of land owned by the United States located on the former U.S. Naval Base Complex in North Charleston, South Carolina (federal land), for specified parcels owned by the South Carolina State Ports Authority (non-federal land).
The bill would require that, upon acceptance of title to the non-federal land by the Secretary of Homeland Security, the bill would require the following: (1) the non-federal land be added to and administered as part of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, and (2) the boundaries of the Center be adjusted to exclude the exchanged federal land.
There was no CBO score at press time.
