SECTION 39-6.1-18

§ 39-6.1-18. Disposition of acquired rail properties.

Whenever the department determines that any rail properties acquired by the state are no longer needed for railroad purposes, it may, with the permission of the governor, permanently or temporarily transfer the rail properties to any other state department or agency, or political subdivision of the state, which shall utilize the properties for a public purpose. Whenever more than one department or agency, or political subdivision, wishes to utilize the property, the department shall resolve such a conflict and make a prompt determination of the reasonable and proper order of priority, taking into consideration any applicable state plans, policies, objectives. If no state department or agency or political subdivision wants the properties, the department may sell them; provided, however, that all dispositions shall be with the approval of the state properties committee.
