This Chapter makes provision for the expropriation of land in American Samoa by the Government for public purposes and for lease of public lands. Where possible, the Governor shall consult with the Legislature about proposed condemnation projects, and shall obtain the advice of the Legislature on all such projects. Compensation shall be paid. Land not used for the stated public purpose within five years of condemnation shall be returned to the owner. Lease of public lands for specified periods shall be subject to conditions relating to adjustment of rental fee and renegotiation of rent or special approval, as the case may be.
