  1. (A) PRIOR TO THE PUBLIC SALE  OF  UNAPPROPRIATED  STATE  LAND,  THE

THE COMMISSIONER OF GENERAL SERVICES WHETHER OR NOT IT WISHES TO ACQUIRE
SUCH UNAPPROPRIATED STATE LAND FOR A PUBLIC PURPOSE.  IF  IT  WISHES  TO
ACQUIRE  SUCH  UNAPPROPRIATED  STATE  LAND, SUCH MUNICIPALITY SHALL HAVE
SIXTY DAYS FROM SO NOTIFYING THE COMMISSIONER IN WHICH TO  CONCLUDE  THE
NEGOTIATION  OF  THE SALE. IF THE MUNICIPALITY NOTIFIES THE COMMISSIONER
THAT IT DOES NOT WISH TO ACQUIRE SUCH UNAPPROPRIATED STATE LAND,  OR  IF
THE  NEGOTIATION  FOR THE SALE THEREOF IS NOT CONCLUDED WITHIN THE SIXTY
DAY PERIOD PROVIDED THEREFOR, THE COMMISSIONER SHALL OFFER SUCH UNAPPRO-
PRIATED STATE LAND FOR SALE  TO  THE  COUNTY  (EXCEPT  A  COUNTY  WHOLLY

ACQUIRE SUCH UNAPPROPRIATED STATE LAND, THE COUNTY SHALL HAVE SIXTY DAYS
FROM SO NOTIFYING THE COMMISSIONER IN WHICH TO CONCLUDE THE  NEGOTIATION
OF  THE  SALE.  IF SUCH UNAPPROPRIATED STATE LAND IS NOT TO BE SOLD TO A
