SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah Sen. Bob Bennett has introduced a bill that would transfer more than 430 acres of public land to the state of Utah to allow the Utah National Guard to expand.

The Utah National Guard Readiness Act would transfer 431 acres of land managed by the Bureau of Land Management within Camp Williams to the state to consolidate ownership in the headquarters area, allowing the Utah National Guard to expand.

The consolidation would allow the state to finance construction of new facilities by bonding, which it can't do without the title to the land.

The House approved a similar bill earlier this year.
