                            [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                     The Committee on Agriculture, to whom was referred the bill
                   (H.R. 1177) to direct the Secretary of Agriculture to release on be-
                   half of the United States the condition that certain lands conveyed
                   to the City of Old Town, Maine, be used for a municipal airport,
                   and for other purposes, having considered the same, report favor-
                   ably thereon without amendment and recommend that the bill do
                   pass.
                                         BRIEF EXPLANATION
                     The Removing Outdated Restrictions to Allow for Job Growth
                   Act, H.R. 1177, directs the Secretary of Agriculture to release on
                   behalf of the United States the condition that certain lands con-
                   veyed to the City of Old Town, Maine, be used for a municipal air-
                   port.
                                 PURPOSE AND NEED FOR LEGISLATION
                     In the early 1980s, the City of Old Town, Maine, purchased land
                   from the federal government to be part of the Old Town Airport.
                   The deed included a use restriction, as required by a 1941 amend-
                   ment to the Bankhead-Jones Farm Tenant Act of 1937, limiting use
                   of the land to a municipal airport or other public use. Old Town
                   has invested heavily in this land in order to attract businesses, but
                   the deed restriction needs to be lifted before further economic de-
                   velopment can occur.
