The U.S. Congress earlier this month passed a bipartisan $867 billion farm bill that includes the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest Land Adjustment Act, which lawmakers said will expand recreation in northeast Georgia through “modified land exchanges.” The act allows the U.S. Forest Service to sell isolated parcels within the two national forests. The Chattahoochee National Forest comprises 750,145 acres across northeast Georgia, with large swaths in Rabun County.
