                                 A BILL


 
To amend the Act popularly known as the Recreation and Public Purposes 
 Act to authorize disposal of certain public lands or national forest 
 lands to local education agencies for use for elementary or secondary 
   schools, including public charter schools, and for other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION. 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Education Land Grant Act''.

SEC. 2. CONVEYANCE OF NATIONAL FOREST SYSTEM LANDS FOR EDUCATIONAL 
              PURPOSES.

    (a) Authority To Convey.--Upon application, the Secretary of 
Agriculture may convey National Forest System lands for use for 
educational purposes if the Secretary determines that--
            (1) the entity seeking the conveyance will use the conveyed 
        land for a public or publicly funded elementary or secondary 
        school, to provide grounds or facilities related to such a 
        school, or for both purposes;
            (2) the conveyance will serve the public interest;
            (3) the land to be conveyed is not otherwise needed for the 
        purposes of the National Forest System; and
            (4) the total acreage to be conveyed does not exceed the 
        amount reasonably necessary for the proposed use.
    (b) Acreage Limitation.--A conveyance under this section may not 
exceed 80 acres. However, this limitation shall not be construed to 
preclude an entity from submitting a subsequent application under this 
section for an additional land conveyance if the entity can demonstrate 
to the Secretary a need for additional land.
    (c) Costs and Mineral Rights.--A conveyance under this section 
shall be for a nominal cost. The conveyance may not include the 
transfer of mineral rights.
    (d) Review of Applications.--When the Secretary receives an 
application under this section, the Secretary shall--
            (1) before the end of the 14-day period beginning on the 
        date of the receipt of the application, provide notice of that 
        receipt to the applicant; and
            (2) before the end of the 120-day period beginning on that 
        date--
                    (A) make a final determination whether or not to 
                convey land pursuant to the application, and notify the 
                applicant of that determination; or
                    (B) submit written notice to the applicant 
                containing the reasons why a final determination has 
                not been made.
    (e) Reversionary Interest.--If at any time after lands are conveyed 
pursuant to this section, the entity to whom the lands were conveyed 
attempts to transfer title to or control over the lands to another or 
the lands are devoted to a use other than the use for which the lands 
were conveyed, without the consent of the Secretary, title to the lands 
shall revert to the United States.
            Amend the title so as to read: ``A bill to authorize the 
        Secretary of Agriculture to convey National Forest System lands 
        for use for educational purposes, and for other purposes.''.
