 RON LIND, Director, Administrative Services, Department of                    
 Transportation & Public Facilities, explained the legislation gives           
 the authority to dispose of land at airports or at facility sites             
 just as they have been doing for the highway excess properties.               
 Currently, if they have an airport site and there is some land they           
 want to trade with the municipality or they want to dispose of to             
 a municipality, they have to notify the Department of Natural                 
 Resources who then works with the municipality and DOT, and SB 275            
 is an attempt to put the process all in one agency.                           
 Number 245                                                                    
 SENATOR TAYLOR asked for an explanation of the differences in a               
 proposed committee substitute that was before the committee.  MR.             
 LIND said the difference basically relates to a concern identified            
 by the Department of Natural Resources.  There are numerous                   
 municipalities that still have land entitlements and they wanted to           
 assure that if they are actually conveying the land to a                      
 municipality and not trading it for another piece of property, that           
 that would count against the municipal land entitlement.  The same            
 section in the bill expanded it in a minor way to take care of                
 public facility sites as opposed to just airport sites.                       
 Number 280                                                                    
 SENATOR LITTLE asked if it was correct that if the municipality               
 purchases the land for full price, it would not be credited against           
 their land entitlement, and MR. LIND acknowledged that was correct.           
 Number 295                                                                    
 SENATOR JACKO moved that CSSB 275(JUD) be adopted.  Hearing no                
 objection, the motion carried.                                                
 SENATOR JACKO moved that CSSB 275(JUD) be passed out of committee             
 with individual recommendations.  Hearing no objection, it was so
