HB 2408 authorizes and directs the Executive Director of the Kansas Historical Society
(KSHS), on behalf of the KSHS, to convey by quitclaim deed a 9.86 acre parcel of land in
Doniphan County to the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska.
The legal description of the parcel is provided in the bill, which also states the property is listed in the National Register of Historic Places (National Register) as the “Iowa, Sac and Fox Presbyterian Mission.” The bill provides the conveyance does not require appraisal, bid, or publication, and the conveyance is not subject to appraisal requirements in continuing law. The Attorney General is also required to review and approve the deeds and conveyances.
The bill provides the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska agrees to pay all costs related
to the conveyance and grants the State a historic preservation easement that reflects current federal preservation laws regarding properties listed in the National Register.
