1. Investigate present condition of over-crowding of the State Capitol and State office buildings now being rented by the State in Austin, and the annual cost thereof, being paid out of public funds
2. Investigate present true value of improvements owned by Travis county upon said leased courthouse site, as may be determined under terms of the lease contract
3. Investigate what blocks of land are now owned by the State of Texas within the business or industrial section of Austin which are not being used to economic advantage, and so situtated at a distance from the Capitol to be unsuited for use by the State for future State office buildings, but which may be deemed suitable for a county courthouse
4. Investigate whether it is deemed desirable, in the judgment of the committee, based on such investigation, to tender fee simple title of one of such blocks of land owned by the State to Travis county, in lieu of cash compensation of an approximately equivalent amount, for such courthouse properties, to the end that such unused State land not suitable for State purposes may be put to the best constructive use.
