Summary: This bill confirms that the boundary of Acadia National Park in Maine includes approximately 1,441 acres of land and interests in the Schoodic Peninsula. The bill ratifies and approves: retroactive to September 26, 2013, the acquisition or purported acquisition by the United States of the land and interests in the Schoodic Peninsula, and any subsequent or purported alteration of the land or interests held or claimed by the United States in the peninsula (including conversion to fee simple interest) retroactive to whatever point an alteration occurred or may have occurred.
