Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 222, A Bill to Amend the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 to Clarify that Uncertified States and Indian Tribes Have the Authority to Use Certain Payments for Certain Noncoal Reclamation Projects and Acid Mine Remediation Programs   [open pdf - 25KB]

This is a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate for S. 222, "A Bill to Amend the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 to Clarify that Uncertified States and Indian Tribes Have the Authority to Use Certain Payments for Certain Noncoal Reclamation Projects and Acid Mine Remediation Programs." According to the report, "CBO estimates that enacting S. 222 would have no significant net impact on the federal budget over the 2014-2023 period. Because enacting the legislation could affect direct spending (increasing it in some years and decreasing it in others), pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting S. 222 would not affect revenues. The bill 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."
