Legislation Seeks To Restore Courthouse To Teton County

Wyoming’s US Senators John Barrasso and Mike Enzi Wednesday introduced legislation that would allow the federal government to transfer ownership of the Clifford P. Hansen U.S. Courthouse back to Teton County.   The Teton County Commissioners had conveyed a parcel of land without any payment to the federal government in 1986 as part of an agreement between Teton County and the Wyoming Federal Court for the establishment of a US District Court in Jackson. With that arrangement ending now, the county sought to reacquire the land and the building that now occupies it:  but Senator John Barrasso says federal officials maintained they could not return the land to the county without legislative authority.  Barrasso says, “The Clifford P Hansen Courthouse provides an essential and convenient meeting place for not only federal and state hearings, but community events as well. By transferring ownership over to Teton County, our bill will ensure this important building remains open to the public and can continue to serve Wyoming and the region as a courthouse.”
