Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 4252, Inland Empire Perchlorate Ground Water Plume Assessment Act of 2010   [open pdf - 20KB]

"H.R. 4252 would direct the U.S. Geological Survey to conduct a study of water resources in the Rialto-Colton Basin located east of Los Angeles, California. The study would identify the location of aquifers in the basin, evaluate the impact of perchlorate contamination in the basin, and include analysis of other related water issues in the basin. Based on information from the U.S. Geological Survey and assuming appropriation of the necessary amounts, CBO [Congressional Budget Office] estimates that implementing H.R. 4252 would cost $4 million over the next two years. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. H.R. 4252 contains no intergovernmental or private-sector mandates as defined in the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act and would impose no costs on state, local, or tribal governments. On March 3, 2010, CBO provided a cost estimate for H.R. 4252 as ordered reported by the House Committee on Natural Resources on February 24, 2010. The two versions of the legislation and CBO's cost estimates are similar."
