H.R. 1485 (101st): Apex Project, Nevada Land Transfer and Authorization Act of 1989

An Act to direct the sale of certain lands in Clark County, Nevada, to meet national defense and other needs, to authorize the sale of certain other lands in Clark County, Nevada, and for other purposes.

The federal budget process occurs in two stages: appropriations and authorizations. This is an authorization bill, which directs how federal funds should or should not be used. (It does not set overall spending limits, however, which are the subject of appropriations bills.) Authorizations are typically made for single fiscal years (October 1 through September 30 of the next year) but are often renewed in subsequent law.
