The White House has released a list of federally owned properties and buildings slated to be sold off or demolished.

Under his 2012 budget, President Obama has called for the elimination of many federal assets no longer needed, including 40 buildings in Georgia.

Federal agencies have named 14,000 unneeded properties that cost tax payers over $1 billion annually in maintenance and upkeep.

Nearly all the buildings scheduled for removal in Georgia are small, utility sheds within the Chattahoochee National Forest.
