Sell Underused Government Assets Such as Real Estate
About the Problem
Federal debt held by the public will exceed 100% of GDP by 2039.
According to the Office of Management and Budget, the federal government owns 1.2 million buildings, structures and land parcels including 14,000 buildings and structures currently designated as excess and 55,000 identified as under- and not-utilized.
About the Policy
Eliminate regulations that limit the sale of valuable but underused federal government assets and buildings, which could create new renovation and construction jobs.
Polling data derived from three national surveys conducted by Cohen Research Group in February and March 2016. Each survey had a sample size of at least 1,000 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.1%
