The bill, Substitute House Bill No. 5522 (File No. 586), proposes the conveyance of a parcel of state land in the town of Woodstock to the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) of Metropolitan Hartford, Inc., specifically for the benefit of YMCA Camp Woodstock. The land in question is approximately 19.3 acres, identified as Lot 35-09 on the town of Woodstock Tax Assessor's Map 7272, and is located adjacent to Camp Road. The conveyance is to be made at a cost equal to the fair market value of the property, as determined by the average of appraisals from two independent appraisers selected by the Commissioner of Energy and Environmental Protection, in addition to the administrative costs of the conveyance. The bill stipulates that the conveyance is subject to the approval of the State Properties Review Board, which must complete its review within thirty days of receiving a proposed agreement from the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection.

The fiscal impact of the bill indicates that the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection will experience a loss of an asset, while the General Fund will gain revenue up to the fair market value of the property, which was most recently valued at approximately $278,000. The State Treasurer is tasked with executing and delivering any necessary deed or instrument for the conveyance, and the Commissioner of Energy and Environmental Protection is responsible for all other aspects of the conveyance. The bill's effects are one-time in nature, with the state losing use of the asset and gaining revenue from the sale. The Office of Legislative Research (OLR) does not analyze Special Acts but provides information on conveyances in an annual report, with the relevant report for 2024 being OLR Report 2024-R-0075. The Government Administration and Elections Committee has given a Joint Favorable Substitute recommendation for the bill.
