HB17-1346 - Land Sale To Fort Logan Cemetery

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning the sale of more than fifteen acres of land at the Colorado mental health institute at Fort Logan to the United States department of veterans affairs for the expansion of Fort Logan national cemetery.

House Bill 16-1456, enacted in 2016, granted the department of human services the authority to sell up to 15 acres around the Colorado mental health institute at Fort Logan to the United States department of veterans affairs for the purpose of expanding the Fort Logan national cemetery. The bill grants the department of human services authority to execute a land sale, at fair market value, to sell 51 additional acres, or up to 66 acres. The bill specifies that the proceeds of the sale of the additional 51 acres to the United States department of veterans affairs must be credited to the Fort Logan land sale account in the capital construction fund. The bill then creates the account in the capital construction fund and specifies that the money in the fund may be used for future capital construction, capital renewal, or controlled maintenance expenses of the department of human services, contingent upon approval by both the office of state planning and budgeting and the capital development committee. The bill further specifies that all or a portion of the money must be expended for veterans-related and behavioral health-related projects.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
