House approves federal property bill

The House unanimously passed Rep. Jason Chaffetz’s proposal to create a pilot program to sell excess and unused federal properties.

Chaffetz, a Utah Republican, proposed the Office of Management and Budget and the General Services Administration maintain a rolling list of the top 15 unused federal property to auction off at fair market value.

The bill, passed on a 403-0 vote, advances to the Senate.
