The Fruit Height Lands Conveyance Act (H.R. 993) is a bill that was introduced in the 113th United States Congress that would transfer 100 acres of land that currently belongs to the United States Forest Service to the city of Fruit Heights, Utah. The bill passed in the United States House of Representatives on June 11, 2013.

Background[edit]

The city in question, Fruit Heights, Utah, is currently surrounded by federal land and unable to expand or build a community cemetery.[1] This legislation would change this.

Provisions/Elements of the bill[edit]

This summary is based largely on the summary provided by the Congressional Budget Office, a public domain source.[2]

H.R. 993 would direct the United States Department of Agriculture to convey, without consideration, certain lands in Utah to the town of Fruit Heights City. Based on information from the Forest Service, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that implementing the legislation would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting H.R. 993 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply.

Under the bill, the Secretary of Agriculture would be required to convey about 100 acres of land within the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest to Fruit Heights City, Utah. The conveyed land could be used by the town for public purposes only and would revert to the federal government if used for other purposes. The affected lands do not currently generate offsetting receipts for the federal government and are not expected to generate such receipts over the next 10 years. Any costs to survey the affected lands would be paid by the town.

Procedural history[edit]
