ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 342, Pine Forest Range Recreation Enhancement Act of 2013   [open pdf - 15KB]

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. 342 would designate 26,000 acres of land in northwest Nevada as the Pine Forest Range Wilderness. The bill also would authorize the Secretary of the Interior to conduct certain land exchanges. Based on information provided by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), CBO estimates that implementing S. 342 would have no significant impact on the federal budget. Enacting the legislation would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply. The acreage to be added to the National Wilderness Preservation System is currently administered by BLM. CBO estimates that no additional resources would be required to manage the affected lands as a result of the new designation. Based on information provided by BLM, CBO expects that certain road modifications required under the bill would be made under current law. Finally, we expect that any costs to revise brochures, maps, and signs would be minimal because most such revisions would take place in conjunction with scheduled reprinting and routine maintenance."
