BILL NUMBER:S3811 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the sale of state lands PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill is to ensure that the natural resource value of state-owned land is fully identified and considered before its sale. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would add a new section 49-0217 to the ECL to require that the State Land Acquisition Advisory Council review any state-owned land prior to its sale. Such review would be conducted to determine: * if the land is within a resource protection area as designated by the State Land Acquisition Plan (SLAP); * if the land meets a category definition contained in the SLAP; or * if it receives a minimum score, above the cutoff, using the appropriate rating system as defined in the SLAP. This bill would also require that if any of the above listed criteria are met, the subject land would be transferred to the Department of Environmental Conservation, and the Department would be required to manage the land in accordance with the recommendations of the SLAP.
