Abstract: The Proposed Action would return 3,658 acres of fee-owned land plus 351 acres of easement interest in Osage County, Oklahoma currently owned by the Federal Government, to private ownership. The 26 parcels of fee-owned land would be offered to the original 21 landowners, or their descendants, at fair market value. If the original landowners or their descendants do not wish to purchase their original parcel(s), the land would be disposed of through the normal disposal process in accordance with PL 107-217. No parcels would be subdivided; parcels would only be sold in their original configuration and only at fair market value. However, after the parcels are sold, they can be subdivided in any legal manner. If some or all of the parcels are not purchased by the original landowners or their descendents and enter the Federal screening process, it is probable that the remainder would be transferred to other eligible Federal agencies. If no other Federal agencies express interest, then the remaining tracts would be offered for public sale. However, the Osage Nation has expressed interest in acquiring any remaining tracts, and since the area is former tribal land, the Nation would have first option under PL 93-599.
