HCS/SB 488 - This act modifies provisions relating to the conveyance of state property.
GUBERNATORIAL CONVEYANCE AUTHORIZATION (Section 37.005) - Currently, the Governor is not required to obtain legislative authorization for the conveyance or transfer of certain properties to certain entities, including easements for rural electric cooperatives, municipal corporations, and public utilities. Instead, under this act, the Governor need not be required to obtain such authorization for granting easements to political subdivisions, rural electric cooperatives, railroads, to accommodate utility service provided to state property or facilities, to accommodate ingress and egress on state properties, or to facilitate the use of common elements of condominium property if the state is a unit owner. The easement shall be used for purposes set forth in this act.
This provision is identical to a provision contained in CCS/HCS/SCS/SB 421 (2017), HB 538 (2017), HB 567 (2017), and is substantially similar to provision contained in SB 148 (2017).
LAND CONVEYANCES (Sections 1-5) - This act authorizes the conveyance of certain state properties located in Independence, St. Louis, Jefferson City, and Mack's Creek.
These provisions are identical to provisions in SCS/HB 956 (2017) and CCS/HCS/SCS/SB 421 (2017).
