§ 766. Reservation of lands to be sold

Upon written notice to the head of a state agency administering state lands, given by the state historic preservation officer, with the advice of the state archeologist, the agency head shall reserve from sale any state lands, including lands forfeited to the state for nonpayment of taxes, on which sites or artifacts are located or may be found, as designated by the state archeologist under section 763 of this title, provided, however, that the reservation of the lands from sale may be confined to the actual location of the site or artifacts. When the sites or artifacts have been explored, excavated or otherwise examined to the extent desired by the state archeologist, he or she shall then file with the agency head a statement releasing the lands and permitting their sale. (Added 1975, No. 109, § 4; amended 1995, No. 46, § 48.)
