    LARSEN of Washington. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume.



    Mr. Speaker, I rise to support H.R. 336 which directs the General Services Administration, the GSA, on behalf of the Archivist of the U.S., to convey 9 acres of property in Anchorage, Alaska, to the local municipality in exchange for its fair market value.

    The Archivist and GSA has reported this property as underutilized and that there is no need to keep this property in the Federal real estate inventory. This sale is consistent with the policy supported by the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, which has directed GSA to help other Federal agencies identify and dispose of unneeded property.

    As a result, I encourage my colleagues to support this legislation, and I yield back the balance of my time.

    The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the motion offered by the gentleman from Alaska (Mr. Young) that the House suspend the rules and pass the bill, H.R. 336.

    The question was taken; and (two-thirds being in the affirmative) the rules were suspended and the bill was passed.

    A motion to reconsider was laid on the table.
