USDA/FS RIN: 0596-AD41 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Small Tracts--Category 4 & 5 Conveyance  
Abstract:

This rule would implement an amendment to the Small Tracts Act (STA) made by section 8621 of the Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018. The rule would authorize the sale, exchange, or interchange of parcels of 40 acres or less and parcels of 10 acres or less not eligible for conveyance. The STA revisions would provide the Forest Service with more options for resolving conflicts with private landowners that do not involve the resources, extended time, and expense of formal legal action. The STA revisions will also allow the Forest Service to convey parcels that are physically isolated, inaccessible, or no longer possess National Forest System characteristics.
