State agencies own property all across Texas. As time goes by, the needs of these state agencies change. Sometimes a valuable property can become an underused state asset.

One of the jobs of the Texas General Land Office is to identify these underused properties and recommend what should be done with them. The Land Office provides the Governor a list of these underused state agency properties periodically. This Governor's Report recommends what should be done with the property. Sometimes the real estate experts at the Texas General Land Office recommend selling these properties. Sometimes the recommendation is to trade or lease these properties. Each property is reviewed on an individual basis.

The Governor has 90 days to approve or disapprove the Texas General Land Office's recommendations.
