The House Natural Resources Committee has passed the "La Pine Land Conveyance Act" which transfers federal land to local control for economic and civic development in La Pine.  The bill, which passed Thursday in the committee, would allow for the transfer of 900 acres of federal lands.  Senator Ron Wyden sponsored the bill, and Representative Greg Walden has helped usher it through the House.  On Monday, Representative Walden will update community leaders on the effort to get the bill signed into law.  Incorporated in 2006, La Pine has worked to develop economic opportunities locally over the past few years, but has struggled because its surrounded most by federal lands.
