H.R. 699: Mount Hood Cooper Spur Land Exchange Clarification Act

This was a vote to pass H.R. 699 in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 699 amends the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 to modify provisions relating to certain land exchanges in the Mt. Hood Wilderness in the State of Oregon. Specifically, the bill modifies the terms of a land exchange between the Forest Service and the Mt. Hood Meadows ski area in Oregon by reducing the amount of land the agency is authorized to convey to the ski area from 120 acres to 107 acres. In addition, once the final appraisal by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is determined, the USDA shall not be required to reappraise or update the value of any of the lands for up to three years, unless the land is significantly or substantially altered by fire, windstorm, or other events. Finally, H.R. 699 requires the exchange to be done within a year of enactment.
