Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 757, Multispecies Habitat Conservation Plan Implementation Act   [open pdf - 16KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on May 16, 2013. From the Document: "S. [Senate bill] 757 would give the city of Mesquite, Nevada, the exclusive right to purchase certain federal lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The bill also would authorize BLM and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to spend proceeds from those sales on specified activities. Based on information provided by the affected agencies, CBO estimates that implementing S. 757 would increase direct spending by $3 million in 2022; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures apply. Enacting S. 757 would not affect revenues. Based on information from BLM and the city of Mesquite, CBO expects that, under current law, the affected lands would be sold under the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA). CBO estimates that proceeds from those sales would total about $3 million in 2022. Under FLPMA, 96 percent of all proceeds from land sales are deposited in the U.S. Treasury. Because S. 757 would authorize BLM and USFWS to spend those proceeds, without further appropriation, to implement plans to conserve multispecies habitat in Nevada and to carry out certain other activities, CBO estimates that implementing the bill would increase direct spending."
