                                        REPORT

                                        [To accompany H.R. 699]
                           [Including cost estimate of the Congressional Budget Office]
                    The Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, to which was
                  referred the bill (H.R. 699) to amend the Omnibus Public Land
                  Management Act of 2009 to modify provisions relating to certain
                  land exchanges in the Mt. Hood Wilderness in the State of Oregon,
                  having considered the same, reports favorably thereon without
                  amendment and recommends that the bill do pass.

                                            PURPOSE
                    The purpose of H.R. 699 is to amend the Omnibus Public Land
                  Management Act of 2009 to modify provisions relating to certain
                  land exchanges in the Mt. Hood Wilderness in the State of Oregon.
                                     BACKGROUND AND NEED
                    Section 1206 of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of
                  2009 (Public Law 111-11) included authorization for a land ex-
                  change to guide where future development would take place around
                  Mount Hood. The land exchange would allow Federal land in Gov-
                  ernment Camp (120 acres) to be made available for development
                  while protecting the larger parcel of non-Federal land at Cooper
                  Spur (770 acres) under Federal ownership.
                    Although the 2009 authority included language stating that it
                  was the intent of Congress that the exchange be completed within
                  16 months after the date of enactment, over six years have passed
                  without completion of the exchange. The long delay, which has
