AGLO 1981 No. 27 >  October 20, 1981
USE OF LANDS ACQUIRED WITH CERTAIN APPROPRIATION In view of the source of the appropriation involved it would be improper for the state to purchase the Milwaukee Railroad right-of-way and existing bridges from Easton in Kittitas County to Tekoa in Whitman County, in accordance with § 17, chapter 143, Laws of 1981, with the present intent or plan to use the subject property for a purpose other than recreation; however, based upon a material change of circumstances following its acquisition, justifying a corresponding change in use, it would be permissible for the legislature to authorize such an ensuing change in use of the land.
