Bill Version: CSHB 146(RES)
Status: Chapter 21 SLA 12 : 2012-05-16
In 2003, Alaska Railroad Corporation asked Congress to repeal reversionary sections (1208 & 1209) of the Alaska Railroad Transfer Act (ARTA).
HB ' reinstates the mechanism (per ARTA) for landowners along the Eielson spur to receive ownership of their property after the easement is no longer used.
The affected parties, ARRC and property owner, support this measure.
I appreciate the committee's consideration for this bill and request your support.
