State (STL) CHAPTER 57, ARTICLE 3
§ 38. Relinquishment of legislative jurisdiction by the United States
of America to this state. 1. The governor is hereby authorized, whenever
he deems it desirable and in the public interest, to cooperate with any
executive agency of the United States of America in following and
fulfilling the procedure set forth in public law 87-852 of the United
States statutes at large, approved October twenty-third, nineteen
hundred sixty-two, for the relinquishment to this state, by the United
States of America acting by and through such executive agency, of all or
part of the legislative jurisdiction over land within this state, which
legislative jurisdiction was heretofore ceded or hereafter will have
been ceded by this state to the United States of America, including the
execution and delivery by the governor of the acceptance provided for by
the said public law 87-852.

Upon such execution and delivery of an acceptance, the governor shall
cause the notice of relinquishment, provided for by the said public law
87-852, and a duplicate original acceptance to be filed and recorded in
the office of the secretary of state of this state. The secretary of
state of this state shall cause to be printed in the session laws, of
the year succeeding such filing and recording in his office, a statement
of the date of the notice of relinquishment, the name of the federal
executive agency which issued the notice, a description of the land
affected, the date of the acceptance by the governor and the date of the

law, the commissioner of general services, upon such terms and
conditions as seem proper to him, may accept on behalf of the state the
relinquishment or retrocession of all or part of jurisdiction in and
over lands previously or subsequently acquired by or ceded to the United
States of America. The relinquishment or retrocession of such
jurisdiction shall be effective upon the written acceptance by the
commissioner of general services of a notice of relinquishment or
retrocession signed by the secretary or head of the appropriate
department or agency of the United States of America. The notice of
relinquishment or retrocession and an executed counterpart of the
written acceptance thereof shall be filed or recorded with the
department of state. The secretary of state shall cause to be printed in
the session laws of the year succeeding such filing or recording a

States of America which issued such notice, (c) a description of the
land affected, (d) the date of acceptance of such notice and (e) the
